Organic at Bore Place
Both our dairy farm and vegetable garden are certified organic by the Soil Association, the certifying body for organic standards in the UK.
Organic food and goods are produced by methods that are environmentally and animal friendly – good for you and good for the planet.
Research is growing all the time about the nutritional differences between organic and non organic crops. A study published in the British Journal of Nutrition Feb 2016 showed organic milk and meat contain around 50% more beneficial omega-3 fatty acids than non-organic.
We produce delicious, organic milk and we grow our own organic vegetables and fruit which are cooked on site and served to guests.
We buy organic, local and fairly traded good and services whenever possible.
High standards of animal welfare
Our cows enjoy high standards of welfare. They are fed high quality organic forage and have fewer antibiotics. Animals are given plenty of space and fresh air to thrive and grow - a truly free-range life.
Better for wildlife
Plant, insect and bird life is up to 50% greater on organic farms.
No artificial fertilizers are used on our land and the woodlands, ponds, hedges and small grassland areas at Bore Place are managed to improve their value to wildlife.
Better for the environment
Organic farming reduces pollution and greenhouse gases released from food production by restricting the use of artificial chemical fertilisers and pesticides.
