Sustainable Farming Practices
We recognize that there is no consensus on how to feed our population and manage our environment.
Food impacts our health and food production impacts our environment, both physically and economically.
To let you know if we align with you, our farms choose the following principles to produce your food:
A holistic approach to Soil, Plants, Animals, Food, People, Environment.
No pesticides or herbicides – reduces risk of harm to farm animals and wild animals and people eating vegetables or meat
Increases bio-diversity in rural areas
Soil organic matter is enhanced by animal manure and by plant composting, so no mono-cropping
Increased organic matter in soil is a major factor in carbon capture
Farm animals fed their natural diets and not fattened with hormones or added grains contributes to animal health
Produce sold locally – limited food miles
More work for farmers and families to deliver sustainable farming, supported by more retention of sale proceeds
