Linscombe Farm Organic Vegetables
Organic farming (Environment)
In a quiet valley in the heart of rural Devon, family-run Linscombe Farm grows good quality, home-grown vegetables. With a focus on ‘local food for local people’, they provide seasonal produce for people who care about what they eat and where it comes from. The farm is also a Soil Association demonstration farm.
Organic agriculture recognises the relationship between our environment, our health and the food we eat. As well as high animal welfare standards, organics avoids the use of pesticides and chemical fertilisers and helps to revitalize the earth. And, because organic farming releases less greenhouse gases than non-organic farming, it means a smaller carbon footprint for the environment. Lending in this sector varies from dairy and meat, to forestry and fruit.
