Crooked End Farm
Organic farming (Environment)
Crooked End in Gloucestershire is a farm run by two families, raising sheep, pigs and hens and growing a variety of fruit and veg.
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.
