Horsemarling Farm is situated in the beautiful Cotswold countryside on the edge of Stonehouse, Gloucestershire.
Stonehouse is a bustling town of over 12,000 residents.
Buying local milk means that more of the profits end up going directly back to us, the farmers. If the farm is able to be more profitable, there is a greater chance that the farm will be able to continue to operate.
We aim to:
- Improve the local economy
- Create more local jobs
- Connect more people to the town
- Promote other local ethical businesses
- Support local not-for-profits
We will be participating in the Country Stewardship Scheme.
Countryside Stewardship (CS) provides financial incentives for farmers, woodland owners, foresters and land managers to look after and improve the environment.
The aim of the scheme is look after and improve the environment by:
- conserving and restoring wildlife habitats
- flood risk management
- woodland creation and management
- reducing widespread water pollution from agriculture
- keeping the character of the countryside
- preserving historical features in the landscape
- encouraging educational access
We feel it is very important to support local charities.
5p of every litre of milk sold will be donated to a local charity.
The charity will be changed at intervals and chosen by the customers.
The charity will be chosen using a suggestion box situated in the vending shed where you can add a charity of your choice (must be local and registered).
We support a wide range of local businesses, either via our very well -stocked produce vending machine or via our Tuesday Mini-Market.
We have a range of local businesses who pop by regularly and on an ad-hoc basis, so always check out our Facebook page for up-to-date info and dates.
