Local Farming

Photo by Emma HouseWe live in a rural community and farming is a way of life for many.
On this page, we aim to provide information of use to all living this caring and productive life.

Village residents can rent the allotment plots opposite the school – contact Helen Cudmore, Clerk to the Council on 01308 488440 or by email: hello@broadwindsorgroup.gov.uk.

 

Red Tractor AssuranceRed Tractor is the largest food assurance scheme in the United Kingdom.
It claims to ensure the food is traceable, safe to eat and has been produced responsibly.  The Red Tractor scheme was launched in June 2000 by the National Farmers Union of England and Wales & tells us all to Buy British!
Since June 2010, Carling cans of lager have displayed the logo, as the barley used has been certified.
