Organic Farming (Environment)
With the help of a Triodos loan Bernard and Alison Worth, who have farmed for 20 years in the south west, have been able to buy the working 280 acres organic dairy farm in the neighbouring village.
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.
