Farm news: Biodegradable bags for Maple Farm produce

1 December 2009

After extensive searches, we have finally found a bag which lives up to its promise.  Under the Soil Association standards, we are obliged to pack our organic produce in bags to keep it separate from other produce on the shelves.  But we hate plastic bags!  Now we've found one which is biodegradable.  To quote from the suppliers: "This bag will degrade after use and help our environmental mission to share the earth responsibly, it's fair trade, organic, degradable and far better for the environment.  It's made of agricultural mulch film and biodegrades without harming living creatures, micro-organisms or the environmental balance".

Look out for our veggies in their new bag and give us your feedback.
