Raby Hall Farm
Organic farming (Environment)
Raby Hall Farm is a large tenanted mixed farm on the Wirral. The Tedstone family founded the farm in 1971, which is now managed by the second generation and concentrate in producing quality beef for local markets.
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.
