The Mercer Family operates a collection of enterprises that operate with a common ethos and governance. We are advocates of the Triple Bottom Line philosophy, focussing not just on profitability but also on social and environmental factors.

OUR VALUES

OUR VALUES

Protecting our Land

We continuously strive to improve our soil; growing a wide selection of crops, to give a balanced rotation to the farm, and utilising the manure from our animals as a natural fertiliser to reduce the need for synthetic fertiliser.

Respecting our Animals

Our animals enjoy the best possible welfare. We ensure access to lots of space, both inside and outside, which helps them express natural behaviours and to live happy and contented lives.

Increasing Biodiversity

By planting grass margins and field corners with wild bird seed, pollen and nectar mixes, we actively encourage a wider diversity of plants, insects, birds and mammals across the farm. We plant new hedges and manage existing ones to help protect the wildlife around us, throughout the year.

Supporting our Communities

We are focussed on successfully growing our family business and committed to making a positive impact on the communities where we live and work. Not only through what we produce but what we give back through our charitable activities.

Improving our Climate

We actively plan for carbon sequestration across our woodlands, grasslands and soil. And we endeavour to waste nothing, from the wheat we grow being incorporated into our animals’ diet, and the straw we use to bed them up.
