Organic farming (Environment)
The Story Group supplies beef and lamb directly to customers through a meat box scheme. All the meat sold is produced by Luke Hasell and Jim Twine on their two farms in Somerset, which they run as one unit.
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.
