A new study by the Natural Environmental Research Council finds that ladybirds fed on aphids from organic crops are more likely to survive. This is in comparison to those fed on aphids from conventional crops which use fertilisers and pesticides. So that’s just one more reason to buy organic when you can.
Our aim at Godminster is to create a self-sustaining environment. One where nature can regenerate and flourish. So, a study showing that ladybirds are more likely to survive thanks to the way we farm is music to our ears.
Over the last decade, we have created and restored numerous natural habitats. We’ve reintroduced native species to replenish ecosystems on the farm. Additionally, we believe the way that we choose to responsibly farm is reflected in flavour and vitality of the products we make. We hope you agree!
