Organic farming (Environment)
Speedwell Farming is an organic contract farming company in eastern England, run by practical, experienced organic farmers and consultants. An overdraft facility from Triodos provided Speedwell Farming, with working capital for organic farmers.
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.
