Local farmers Marian and David Harding have been awarded a place in the finals of ‘Sussex Farmer of the Year’ at the upcoming Sussex Food Awards 2014.
The Hardings, of Court Lodge Organics , own a mixed dairy farm on the edge of the Pevensey Levels.
The farm is run organically with no pesticides and special habitat areas which enable wildlife to flourish.
An area of the farm is also a Sussex Wildlife Trust reserve. Court Lodge Farm produces its own range of natural and fruit pouring yogurts in bottles.
Marian said: “We are so pleased the judges recognised the great team effort that goes into running Court Lodge farm whilst protecting and encouraging the huge variety of wildlife found on the farm.”
The Awards take place at the Amex Stadium on January 30.
