Why buy organic?
Barbury Hill was founded on the idea of supporting British producers and making their produce more accessible to customers around the UK. But the more we explored, the more we discovered that buying British has a greater benefit. With so many of our independent producers focusing on sustainability and minimising their impact on the planet, we’ve found many are dedicated to organic produce. We’ve taken a look at why buying organic brings benefits to you, the planet and the animals.
Be more Bee
We all know there’s a climate crisis unfolding, but with such a global problem it can be difficult to know how to help as an individual. We won’t pretend to have all the answers, but we do have one. Buy organic.
As individuals, we feel small, and that our actions are also small. But think of yourself as an insect (bear with us!). They’re small, but their impact on the food chain is immense. Without bees, for instance, there’s no pollination and no growth.
Now think of yourself as that bee. We may be small as individuals but together we make an impact. Small changes, like buying organic food, perhaps seem insignificant, but they build up to become something far greater.
1. Good for the local and global environment
2. Good for you
3. Good for the animals
Organic food and drink from Barbury Hill
From the silky soft smudge of Bath Soft Cheese, to the hoppy zest of an IPA from Stroud Brewery, Barbury Hill is proud to support the organic farming mission in the UK by stocking the best of British. Baked by Beth’s largely organic plant-based brownies and bars leave a sweet taste in the mouth in more ways than one, while Gattertop’s Soil Association organic certification is as refreshing as their Damson No.12 Vodka.
Why buy organic?
With many of the food and drink products on Barbury Hill bought as gifts for loved ones, friends, neighbours and colleagues, buying organic is an added bonus in an already thoughtful gift. And with the best of British featured on our site, you can be sure that many will be following organic practises or as close to them as possible.
Our food and drink gifts are thoughtfully handpicked, and thoughtfully chosen by our customers. And when that thoughtfulness extends further, to the whole supply chain, it creates a gift that gives so much more than it seems.
