Sustainability in Action
We take sustainability seriously here on the farm and one of the key areas we are passionate about is biodiversity.
One of the main ways in which we promote biodiversity on the farm is through the enhancement of the bee population. Bees are released on a biweekly basis to pollinate our chilli plants, ensuring we are engaging in the most natural growing process possible. We even managed to catch one at work here.
