Niels has been a great help for Montgomerie Farms. Since we committed to going down the regenerative farming route, he has been an essential guide helping us with strategy, key suppliers and implementation.
We were keen to make sure we had the data before we started and Niels has been key in helping us choose the right software, input our farm correctly and select the right tools to take the ongoing measurements required.
I would highly recommend him for anyone choosing to go down this route.
