Organic farming (Environment)
China Plate Farm is situated in the west of the Wirral Peninsular, an area renowned for its outstanding coastline and idyllic sunsets with views across the river Dee to Wales. This busy mixed farm is diversifying to include B& B and allotments.
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.
