Haye Farm on River Tamar
Organic farming (Environment)
Haye is a tenanted working organic farm where the land kisses the River Tamar making Haye Marsh. With a grazing suckler herd and vegetables, the produce is sold through Riverford and Tamar Grow Local. Free guided farm walks for six or more are available.
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.
