All divisions of Huntapac Produce are especially dedicated to the protection and preservation of our environment and strive to achieve a healthy balance between our farming practices and the local environment. Coe House Farms is a member of one initiative called LEAF (Linking Environment And Farming), which was set up in 1991. At that time, the gap between consumers and farmers was getting wider and the need to meet and understand both sides of the debate was essential. For the first time a group of farmers, environmentalists, food and agricultural organisations, consumers, government and academics got together to do something positive for the farming industry. They were motivated by a common concern for the future of farming and keen to develop a system of farming which was realistic and achievable for the majority of farmers. LEAF encourages farmers throughout the UK to adopt Integrated Farm Management (IFM) and to promote the benefits of IFM to consumers.
