Birds & Bees; A farming philosophy that puts wildlife first!
Birds and Bees actually started life ten years ago as a project to create some space on our farm for wildlife. Back then, everyone was farming to the edge of every field; great for farming yields, but not so good for birds, bees and butterflies which had nowhere left to live.
Ten years later, we have over 150 acres of land dedicated to wildlife, home to thousands of species. Every year we make the farm better for wildlife, but we realised that to make a bigger difference we needed to encourage more people to look after birds and bees in their own gardens, and more farmers to farm in a wildlife friendly way. And with that, Birds and Bees was born. Watch our video to find out more...
We buy all our British cereals from bird and bee friendly farmers and we're also dedicated to creating more habitats for wildlife - that's why we're planting one square foot of new wildflower meadow for every new customer who joins us!
"These strips of wildflower meadows (we like to call them “living bird tables”) are planted at the edge of farmland, creating valuable wildlife corridors for a number of species including birds, bees, butterflies, insects, bats and larger mammals."
We’ve only just started, so we’re learning all the time. Let us know what we’re doing well and what we could do better!
