The Wellbeing Farm scoops sustainability award

The Wellbeing Farm in Edgworth has been crowned the Winner of the Ethical, Responsible and Sustainable category at the Lancashire Tourism Awards 2021.

The awards celebrate excellence across a wide range of visitor economy businesses, revealing the brightest and best stars working in Lancashire tourism today. 

The Wellbeing Farm was recognised for its commitment to being sustainable, responsible and ethical in how they operate and interact with customers, the wider community and the environment. The farm which is powered by a wind turbine has been working on sustainability  since it opened in 2013 and last year produced a dedicted sustainability website which highlighted work done towards each of the 12 Sustainable Development Goals.

Celia Gaze, founder and managing director of The Wellbeing Farm says: “During lockdown, we decided to really focus on our sustainability work and the time spent is paying off. Having represented independent hospitality businesses at a special fringe event at COP26 in Glasgow last year, winning an award in this category is an important achievement."

The Wellbeing Farm will now have the opportunity to represent Lancashire in the national VisitEngland Awards for Excellence 2022.
