Rooting For Real Farms Case Study 34: Treflach Farm, Shropshire

👨‍🌾 Ian Steele from Treflach Farm in Shropshire & Steve Jones from Sector39 Permaculture design, discuss how Treflach farm has fared during coronavirus. A lot of the farm’s wholesale customers struggled, so they’ve remodelled and now sell much more to local customers, which has reduced food miles and overheads.

🗣️ Ian says, “We’ve been able to do this because more people have been interested to buy locally during coronavirus which we didn’t have before and has created more local demand”.

If we don’t continue to support our local farmers & high welfare independent retailers now and into the future, we will lose them! #RootingForRealFarms
