Over 10 years ago Neston Home Farm started the transition to organic farming and in 2003 the Home Farm became certified organic by The Soil Association.
The organic cereal rotation works hand in hand with the dairy and beef. The cereals are used to feed the organic cattle and the organic barley has been used in the production of Fullers Honey Dew Ale.
At Neston we strongly believe that this approach benefits wildlife and livestock. Since turning organic we have noticed a marked increase in the wildlife on the estate and the health of our herds has certainly improved with the less stress, less intensive farming methods we use today.
Our animals are all born and reared on Home Farm and are cared for by our award-winning farm team. The Jersey cows produce our high-quality organic milk which is in turn used for Luscious Ice Cream, The Old Cheese Room and also sold under the Ivy House Farm label which can not only be found locally but also in London High Street Stores including Fortnum & Masons, Harrods and Selfridges!.
