Sunderland’s first organic farm

Date Published: 20/08/2009

OF&G licensee, Martin Orr, and his family are featured in the Sunderland Echo as Sunderland’s first organic farmers.

It must be said we were quite surprised at this apparent statistic, because it’s rare to find anywhere that isn’t represented yet by an organic farm. Out of interest, we checked our database and it certainly doesn’t appear that we have anyone else registered there, though, of course, we only certify a portion of the market (and many people will testify to the fact that trying to get a full list for the UK out of Defra is like, well, something that’s impossible to do!).

The Orr’s have a good business going supplying their organic pork, lamb and beef to a growing band of loyal customers.

We wish them every success!
