About

Rookery Farm is a 286-Hectare Family farm with an additional 720- hectare contract farming operation. It is the host for the Diss AHDB Monitor Farm Currently Managed by Richard Ling, The Lings are a traditional farming family and have been farming at Rookery farm since 1957.

Richard Ling is an innovative farmer keen to explore how technology can benefit farm businesses as well as sharing his experience of his on-farm trials. Recently Richard has focused on direct drilling comparisons and companion cropping, also dabbling with some inter cropping. We were early adopters to the Landscape Enterprise Network (LENs) of nature-based solutions, and are committed to reducing our carbon footprint and reaching Net zero, as part of this goal one of our latest trial is around using waste cocoa shells as an artificial fertiliser replacement.
