LEAF – Linking Environment and Farming

LEAF (Linking Environment and Farming) is an organisation which inspires and enables sustainable farming that is prosperous, enriches the environment and engages local communities. The Three Counties Agricultural Society are proud to support the work that LEAF does through LEAF Education. LEAF works with many farmers across the UK to help them farm sustainably and promote the work that they are doing. The videos give you an insight into how the farmers grow their produce.
