Looking after the land

Sustainability

We are absolutely committed to sustainable dairy farming in the UK for the future.

Our focus is on managing our farm efficiently, minimising inputs and optimising output.

For many years we’ve had large areas of land that have been extensively managed to encourage wildlife and enhance natural flora and fauna. We also maintain our woodland and hedgerows to encourage wildlife habitats, and conduct biodiversity surveys each year to quantify species and numbers, building up an invaluable record of trends.

What’s more, we are committed to reducing our impact on the environment and, due to our efficient farming practices, we are very proud that our carbon footprint is approximately half the national average.

Ultimately, we try to make sure that anything we do on the land ensures the farm is better for the future.

A wise man once said that you should farm as if you are going to live forever and that is certainly the mantra we follow around here.
