Organic farming (Environment)
Organic family run farm set in the heartland of the Brecon Beacons in Wales. They let holiday cottages which are all eco friendly and produce a range of meats which are sold locally. The farm benefits from having installed a small hydro scheme generating electricity while having a low impact on the natural environment.
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.
