Organic farming (Environment)
Family run dairy farm in Wiltshire who were helped by finance from Triodos Bank to purchase additional land to convert to organic as well as funding a new roof mounted solar installation to reduce their reliance on purchased energy.
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.
