We Are
Custodians
Of The
Countryside

Our Carbon Footprint

We endeavour to keep our impact on the environment as low as possible.

We live by these simple rules to ensure we meet our sustainability goals.

  • We do not use bottled water in our offices.

  • We use 100% biodegradable packaging.

  • We generate our own electricity through our solar panels.

  • Staff live on site – so no transport to work.

  • We recycle packaging, plastic and metal.

  • We use a hydroponic system so there is no soil erosion, the fruit can not be damaged by flooding and to help reduce the impact on people’s posture when picking the fruit.

Pesticides

We are constantly reviewing our use of pesticides and reducing their use wherever possible. We favour the use of biological pest control – (bugs that kill creepy crawlies) thereby reducing the amount of pesticides used. We are trying to protect our countryside and bring more equilibrium. Bio-pests is a growing industry as farmers and growers need alternatives to chemical pesticides as more environmental forms of crop protection.

Sustainability

We believe in a truly sustainable approach to farming and we try not to waste anything. All of our water requirements for the crop come from our 25 million gallon lake, we generate our electricity from solar panels and strawberries that don’t meet the premium specification are used as an ingredient or for processing in British cottage industry jams and chutneys. We are farmers at heart, we value our land, countryside and fruit that we produce.
  • We do not have food waste.

  • We do not export.

  • All fields surround the farm so everyone walks to work.

  • We collect all of the water we use.

  • Sourcing as local as possible.

  • We have planted thousands of trees around the farm to help combat climate change, support agriculture, as they improve soil condition and stop topsoil erosion and to encourage wildlife.
