Community Responsibility 

Blackdown Growers is committed as a company to give something back. This includes both to the environment and the people within it. We enjoy our working environment and believe it is important to share this with others. Blackdown Growers actively encourage and supports the community to learn about the source of their Salads and Herbs and therefore provide regular visits and tours to educate and inform people of our growing production systems. We strongly believe that local people should be able to enjoy the surrounding countryside. Great care is taken to maintain the heritage of our landscape, integrating farming with environmental stability for everybody to enjoy. 

We are always looking at ways to give back into the community
