Peter Segger
Compost expert & owner of Blaencamel Farm


Can we listen to the soil? Can we think about its needs as well as our own? Can we learn to feed the soil as well as us? 30 years of farming can teach us how.

For 30 years Peter Segger’s award winning 45 acre farm has produced organic vegetables and salads for its customers.

Over that time, Peter has learnt to listen to the soil? He has learnt what it needs are, when he can take from the land and when he can’t. He has learnt how to feed the soil so it feeds him and his customers. And he has learnt to do this without fertilizers and at the same time creating a negative carbon footprint, which is a good thing.
