LEAF (Linking Environment and Farming) - food you can trust produced by farmers who care for the environment
All of our crops here at Bottom Farm including the rapeseed used for pressing into Farrington's MELLOW YELLOW cold pressed rapeseed oil are grown to LEAF Marque standards, a system designed to promote environmentally responsible and sustainable farming. LEAF Farmers care about the countryside for you to enjoy today and tomorrow, and their produce can be identified by the LEAF Marque which appears on their labels.
LEAF is a registered charity promoting environmentally responsible farming, through encouraging farmers globally to produce food with care for the environment and to improve public understanding of food and farming.
LEAF is a proactive and inclusive charity which brings together thousands of individuals and organisations to deliver a shared vision for the future of farming and food. LEAF's vision sees farmers flourishng in their roles as food producers and stewards of the countryside, with consumers enjoying nutritious food - confident that it has been produced in an environmentally and socially responsible way. LEAF Marque farmers care for the environment by: - Carefully managing their hedgerows to provide a variety of habitats and food sources for wildlife - Using pesicides and fertilisers only when absolutely necessary - Leaving buffer strips as 'wildlife corridors' between crops and nearby watercourses - Recyling on-farm waste and conserving energy - Assessing the environmental impact of their farming practices - Continually improving their farming practices and the environment - Using crop rotations to keep the soil in good health
LEAF connects the public and farmers in many ways, including Open Farm Sunday and a national network of demonstration farms that are open all year round for visits.
