Responsibility

Responsibility means so many different things to a business like the A H Warren Trust.

In many ways farming as a business and livelihood is unique, as it involves not only the production of a product but also the welfare of livestock, the maintenance of the environment and the appearance of our countryside, not just now, but for the future.

Fulfilling our responsibilities and maintaining organic status is one element of our ongoing commitment to being an ethical business. To this end, we are always developing and maintaining Farm Environmental and Development plans, working with bodies such as, The Soil Association, The RSPCA, Freedom Foods and Farm & Food Assurance (Red Tractor).

Our association with these and other independent bodies helps to ensure that our policies are all based on the very best practices, standards and knowledge.

However our commitment to corporate and social responsibility goes much deeper than this and we work to source and refine our own water, harvest solar energy to power our site and work with local schools and colleges to pass our knowledge on to the next generation.

We’ll update this section of the website with case studies of new work on a regular basis. From preparing local produce to running retail outlets, there are many challenges ahead.
