Holden Farm Dairy

Organic farming (Environment)

In 2006 Patrick Holden, CEO of the Sustainable Food Trust and his son Sam and wife Rachel developed a cheese making project at the family farm in West Wales, using a century old recipe to produce Hafod, a raw milk cheddar style cheese with a unique buttery flavour from their 75 Ayrshire cows. Sam and Rachel have now moved on, but cheesemaking tradition continues led by Patrick, his wife Becky, head cheesemaker Rob Howard and their team.


Organic farming

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.
