Organic September, the UK’s largest campaign to support organic farmers and producers, will be encouraging everyone to make planet-positive decisions, to show that nature has the answer, and a small swap can make a big difference. Throughout September Rhug Estate will be taking part in the scheme to entice customers to make the swap to organic products.
Organic September is about celebrating everything organic and the hard work and dedication that goes into growing and making it work with nature, not against it. The last year has brought huge changes to our world – now, more than ever, we are all seeking solutions that help restore nature, health and our climate.
With one small swap to organic, consumers can take a tangible action to support a more sustainable future for the world in which we live in – by supporting wildlife and high animal welfare; helping combat climate change and enjoying food as it should be. Organic works with nature, not against it, by protecting our soil, our wildlife and our world.
Unable to carry out something he did not believe in, Lord Newborough converted the land at Rhug, in Denbighshire, north Wales, to organic in 1998 when he inherited the conventional beef and sheep farm from his father. The satisfaction Lord Newborough gets from organic farming is unmeasurable and his passion for organic farming is never ending. Under an organic system the farm benefits from rich organic pastures that the animals are free to graze in a stress-free environment. The animals’ live life as nature intended with minimal stress and the highest quality of life.
Lord Newborough said, “Farming organically is more important than ever to the future of our planet as we are already having to face, head on, the impact of climate change. Every day the headlines tell us of wildfires, floods, record-breaking temperatures. For the sake of the next generation consumers must make the switch to an organic, sustainable, way of living.
“At Rhug we really care about sustainability in everything we do, organic farming, organic skin care, green energy and caring for the environment. We are constantly looking at how each aspect of the business can reduce its carbon footprint. Work will never stop on making Rhug as efficient as it possibly can be.”
During Organic September Rhug Farm Shop will be offering visitors a FREE organic tote bag while stocks last.
