River Cottage HQ

Organic farming (Environment)

A Triodos loan helped Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall, food writer and broadcaster, to renovate a 65-acre organic farm in Devon, turning it into his cookery school, River Cottage HQ. The school teaches a wide range of skills including butchery, foraging, fishing and artisan baking. Triodos Bank finance has also provided working capital for HFW Interactive, the company which manages River Cottage HQ.


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.
