EATING MEAT: A SUSTAINABLE SOLUTION

zero FOOD waste

We don’t waste a scrap of food.

Making a few small changes can have a huge impact on the amount of waste we produce. We compost, reuse and recycle at every opportunity and value the true cost of real food. By continuing to follow the steps outlined within the following link, Daylesford works hard to remain one of the most sustainable restaurants and organic farms in the UK.

REFUSE, REDUCE, REUSE, REPAIR, RECYCLE, REHOME, ROT

CLEAN ENERGY

By 2020, our farm will be 75% energy self-sufficient

We recently built a new office and refrigeration for our fresh produce.  With its modern design, biomass heating and solar panels on the roof, we are proud to achieve the A+ energy performance certificate rating, meaning it is a carbon-zero building.

PACKAGE LIGHTLY

Our goal is 100% recyclable, reusable or compostable packaging

We prefer to display our food in its natural state and have always chosen to give our customers paper rather than plastic carrier bags. Bring one of our sturdy paper bags back to use again, or recycle or bring your own bag for life.

Invest in reusable cups for your daily coffee fix. If you bring a clean, reusable cup or salad box to a Daylesford Food-To-Go counter, you will save 50p

We are committed to saving our most vital pollinators

Bees are essential to life as we know it. To help protect them, plant some flowers, buy organic and leave a little wild space in the garden.

CAN WE CONSUME 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.
