Duke of Gloucester Visits Fordhall Organic Farm (13th March 2014)

The Duke of Gloucester paid a flying visit to Shropshire yesterday where he visited Fordhall Organic Farm as part of his visit.

The Duke was at Fordhall Organic Farm to officially unveil its renovated yurts, which have been turned into camping accommodation for visitors.

This was followed by a tour of the farm, with the opportunity to meet some of its many volunteers and shareholders.

The Duke hailed the success of the farm and said he was impressed with the new visitor accommodation.

“You are trying to show to people where our food comes from, how you can farm in different ways and use different methods,” he told owners Ben and Charlotte Hollins.

“I hope people will stop here, enjoy it and see something interesting.”

Ms Hollins said: “We were very honoured to have him and he really engaged well with everybody. It was great to see everyone have a good time, including the Duke. He seemed most interested in the compost toilets. I don’t think he had seen one of them before.”
