"The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago, the next best time is today"

~ Chinese Proverb

“Organic means working with nature. It means higher levels of animal welfare, lower levels of pesticides, no manufactured herbicides or artificial fertilisers and more environmentally sustainable management of the land and natural environment, which means more wildlife.” Soil Association
