Sustainability

Our Environment

When we became custodians of the site at Birchington, alongside our glasshouses we wanted to include specific areas for grassland and wild flowers, protecting wildlife that had been here much longer than we had.

We have restored around 16 hectares to Kentish chalk grassland to aid the establishment of butterflies and other animals. We have planted over 120 sqm of native wild flowers, including 3 types of orchid and over 15,000 trees and shrubs.

Regular bird, bee and butterfly surveys confirm we’re managing the site for their benefit and chart our positive progress.

We are very proud to have achieved LEAF marque certification, a great endorsement of our approach to our environmental responsibilities and integrated farm management.
