Sheepdrove Organic Farm
Organic farming (Environment)
Sheepdrove is an award-winning, family-run mixed organic farm which is Soil Association and PFLA certified. They are home to a sustainable and environmentally sound conference centre using renewable energy projects. They also run an organic butchers’ shop in London.
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.
