Red Tractor Assurance
The Estate are pleased to report that our growing Home Farm has been approved again this year under the Red Tractor Assurance scheme. The scheme is the UK’s largest food standards scheme, covering all the areas you care about – animal welfare, food safety, trace-ability and environmental protection. Working with experts in their fields, the scheme ensures that families across Britain have access to safe, quality food that has been grown and reared in the UK to rigorous farming standards. Independent assessors perform checks at every step of the food journey from farm to packet, so that people can be sure that it is traceable, safe and farmed with care. The Red Tractor is only found on food and drinks that are sourced from UK farms and have been checked from farm to basket. By looking for the Red Tractor, you are choosing food you can trust, as well as helping provide support and security for British farmers and food producers.
