Organic standards and certification

Our farm is registered with the Soil Association and managed to Soil Association Certification standards. Our Soil Association Certification number is 1233456789 G4302.

The Soil Association is the UK's leading campaigning and certification organisation for organic food and farming. It seeks to develop and uphold the highest standards of organic integrity. Within the Soil Association there are seven standards committees that review standards and offer recommendations to the Soil Association Council for amendment and refinement of the standards. The Certification department of the Soil Association rigorously enforces these standards.

The Soil Association's famous logo is only awarded to those producers and retailers who have reached and maintain its high standards. Soil Association Certification inspects and certifies our farm every six months.

Organic farming systems, including ours, aim for sustainable production in harmony with the environment, farmland and livestock, to produce delicious and wholesome food without the cocktails of chemicals associated with industrial farming.
