The countryside is full of amazing hidden facts:



  • Farmers manage 75% of the total land area of the UK- nearly 20 million hectares - or 40 million football pitches - and more than 85% of the countryside

  • There are 500,000 km of hedgerows in England and Wales- that's enough to go 12 times round the earth

  • Bees are vital for food production- introducing bee colonies to orchards can increase fruit yield by around 50-80%

  • Just one teaspoon of soil contains millions of organisms, such as fungi and bacteria that help feed plants.
