Escarpment Applesham Farm – South Downs

Even though the South East is densely populated, more than 80% of the region is classified as rural. 

One third of its countryside is protected for its landscape quality and agriculture divides neatly into three main farming types: horticulture, arable and livestock production. Farmers and growers generate £1.25billion annually from all the crops and livestock they produce.
