About Daylesford Organic
Over forty years ago, we began to turn our family’s farmland over to sustainable, organic farming, first in Staffordshire and then in the Cotswolds. What began as a simple passion for real food and a desire to feed our children better has grown into Daylesford as we know it today, one of the most sustainable organic farms in the UK. We believe that when people eat natural, organic food, they can taste the difference. It’s begins with healthy soil, and finishes with healthy animals and people.
