Environmental pledge


The company interpret their industrial activity as being carbon neutral due to the savings in terms of environmental impact through the use of and ongoing management and maintenance of the schemes.

Despite this fact and to make a bold statement of policy and commitment in support of Environmental Awareness, in March welters® acquired Ellery Hill in Cumbria. Yes, the fencing and ‘long gone’ ancient hedgerows are being re-established but additionally Galloway herds of ‘Green’ single suckler cattle, outlying and feeding from not only natural grasses but heathers, mosses and water meadow plants will be introduced. This is indeed an Agricultural food production policy for Beef which is not encouraged by Government Policy. Quite predictably, the Ellery Hill model will become an example from which Government Policy will be changed in around fifteen years time!
