Learn about Farmer Palmer's Eco Facts and Policies
We recognise that our company has an impact on the environment. Our ongoing aim is to reduce, re-use and re-cycle as much as possible.

Eco Farmer – We feel we are guardians of our farmland and the woodland we own. Because it is important that we maintain the hedges, ditches, soil quality, animals, flora and fauna that live here . Dragonflies can be seen on our woodland walk, Sherford river, lake, and ponds. We plant gardens to encourage bees and insects to pollinate the flowers. Every Company’s actions have a direct impact on the environment. It is our responsibility to consider this for future generations.

Farmers have to regularly evaluate how we do things and how those actions impact the planet. As a consequence, it is our ongoing aim to continue to identify and reduce our environmental impact. We have effective measures to minimize waste and energy consumption through implementing recycling, purchasing, and monitoring policies.

Lake Restoration Project (2019)

Down by our Woodland Walk, you will see our amazing lake. Back way when, this used to be an old Victorian Lake which used to service the Organford Mill. Being Farmers, we can’t keep still so when the pandemic hit and we weren’t able to go out and about. We spent our time social distancing and restoring the lake! After all the hard work, we aren’t the only ones who have benefitted from the beautiful lake, but so have all the new species.

You can see the different stages below!

Wildlife Camera

We have a monthly series on our YouTube channel which showcases some of the amazing wildlife we find using a fallen tree to cross the riverbank. In these short clips, you can see owls, foxes, stoats, kestrels, and even some otters! We hope you enjoy taking a moment and watch the nature.
