Organic farming (Environment)
Tredudwell Farm is a detached Georgian farmhouse that has been refurbished by owners for holiday use. It is situated in the heart of a small working farm and is a short drive from the villages of Looe and Polperro.
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.
