The Allerton Project

The Allerton Project

The Allerton Project researches the effects of different farming methods on wildlife and the environment, sharing results of our research through advisory and educational activities. This is undertaken on our 320-hectare demonstration farm based in Leicestershire, United Kingdom. Visitors to the project include businesses, policymakers, non-government organisations, regulators, farmers, advisors, students and schools. We have several initiatives that involve the local community to help improve a shared understanding of agricultural and environmental issues.

The Society has worked with the GWCT Allerton Research Project producing a number of webinars which can be viewed by clicking here.

Woburn Country Foods

At Woburn Country Foods Butchers, we specialise in local meat from our Bedfordshire Farmers’ Producer Group. This not only means that we can supply our customers with top quality products, but can also maintain high standards of animal welfare and traceability. All our products are handmade so we can guarantee that all beef products contain 100% beef, all pork 100% pork, all venison 100% venison and so on, across our range! We have reduced Food Miles, the journey the meat takes from farm to plate, which helps the environment and puts money back into the local community. Our friendly and knowledgeable butchers are happy to help you with what cuts to buy, how to prepare and cook the meat, and what’s in season right now. We are proud to be a family-owned and run business and hope to see you in one of our stores soon or shopping through our online butcher’s shop.
