Green Tourism

As a working farm, the environment is our priority and at Bellevue farm it is important to us to lessen any adverse impacts that our actions have in every way possible, and with some actions we aim to improve our local environment.

Caring for our environment

We are delighted to have received a Gold Award for Green Tourism and are constantly assessing our processes to seek more sustainable options. You will see some of our actions as you explore the farm: look out for our commitment to biodiversity by providing natural habitats for wildlife and insects and notice that the paper in the toilets is unbleached and recycled paper. (Don’t be alarmed – it is clean!) There is also a lot of work going on behind the scenes that you will not be so aware of. To get a better understanding of the commitment we are making take a look at our Green Tourism Policy here.
