FOR MORE THAN 40 YEARS DAYLESFORD HAS BEEN ONE OF THE MOST PIONEERING AND SUSTAINABLE FARMS IN THE UK. WE FARM RESPONSIBLY AND MINDFULLY, HOLDING OURSELVES ACCOUNTABLE FOR OUR ETHICAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL STANDARDS.
Eating well is sharing seasonal, local, organic food that nourishes our bodies. We believe that producing food organically, following the year’s natural rhythms, is not only best for the future of our planet, it is better for our wellbeing too.
By shopping and eating organically you are choosing to invest in the long-term health of the planet and the wellbeing of yourself and your family, now and for the future.
CAN WE EAT MEAT WITH A CONSCIENCE?
We are frequently asked why we continue to farm livestock here at Daylesford. We have created this short film to encourage discussion around the topic of meat consumption and to hopefully answer the question of whether we can, in today’s climate, consume meat with a conscience.
We believe that a mixed farming model works best and that it is possible to farm livestock sustainably, but in order to protect our planet for future generations, steps must be taken to reduce the amount of meat we are currently consuming as a society. Vegetables, fruits, pulses and seeds should be the main feature of our diet while seasonal, high welfare and high quality meat should be used sparingly.
