Is The Oak Tree certified organic?

No, and we’re not allowed to use the “O” word because we’re not certified.

All cultivation at The Oak Tree is done without artificial fertilisers, pesticides or other chemicals, and we use only natural non-chemical pest control and fertilisers.

Organic certification costs around £500 per year and imposes considerable paperwork overheads, and might mean we couldn’t feed our animals with legal waste food that would otherwise go to land fill, and other similar constraints, which would in turn increase our carbon emissions.
