In former centuries hedge rows had been used in many ways by farmers. Leaves were harvested as winter fodder and hedges were used as living fences. A new approach to integrate hedge rows into modern organic farming is to combine hedges with outdoor runs for laying hens. Agro-environmental schemes may bring new opportunities for production hedges in farming systems.
