We believe that transparency and trust in farming is vital, but this was recently brought home to us in a big way. To give everyone the opportunity to learn more about us, we are hosting some Heritage Farm tours. We’ll share our farming practises, and visitors will be able to check us out in person. Everyone will be free to ask questions, and see for themselves what we do!
Heritage Farm Tours
When we decided to start a farm, we wanted education and information sharing to be a part of it. With such a large range of animals and projects going on at the moment we think that it’s the perfect time to dive into the world of farm tours. While we are certainly under the pump, we also feel there is never a perfect time to start. Besides, this way you get to see the beginning of the journey, and hopefully see it all the way through with us.
Our first tour will be a bit of a test to see what people like, and then we can make adjustments. It’s not a one way street either! We do our absolute best on the farm, but it’s been a steep learning curve. If you have questions about why we’ve chosen certain things we’d love to hear them. And we welcome input and suggestions too. To us, the most important thing is to treat our animals, plants and land as well as possible. If you have something to suggest that aids us in our ethical, sustainable, and regenerative farm journey, then we’re all ears!
Transparency and building trust
Transparency has always been important to us, and it’s a big part of the reason why we spend time on this blog. We want you to see what it is we do- when it works well, and when it’s something we need to improve! We believe that consumers should be able to choose exactly the sort of food they want – and know its origins.
The problem is, that even when you’re interested in where your food comes from, the labels aren’t always very informative. In fact, sometimes they’re outright lies! We are in the process of looking at organic certification, so there’s an independent body you can trust standing by our product. But in the mean time, what more effective way to share the way we farm, than to share the farm itself. By opening up the farm and answering any questions that people have, we hope to be as transparent as possible.
We’d love to see you at our first farm tour. Or if the date is no good, we’re running more in January. Check out the dates, and register here.
