Why Organic


Being organic means we work with nature not against it. Organic farming involves using lower levels of pesticides, no manufactured herbicides or artificial fertilisers.

It involves adopting a more environmentally sustainable approach to management of the land and the natural environment such as ‘strip mowing’ which means we mow every other row so insects have more area to make their homes in. Since we don’t rely on synthetic pesticides and fertilisers which pollute water sources and contaminate the soil the wildlife in our orchards thrive.

The planet also prospers because healthy soils are a major store of carbon, containing three times as much carbon as the atmosphere and five times as much as forests.

Because of the absence of manufactured herbicides and the severely restricted use of pesticides, our orchards are sanctuaries for wildlife and provide homes to many bees, birds and butterflies. By managing and maintaining healthy habitats we support up to 50% more wildlife.
