NUT SUPPLIES - Ethical nut supplies from Food & Forest; a community interest company (CIC) funding agroforestry farming. Selling raw organic nuts, a roasted savoury range, and sweet nut brittle. Kentish cobnuts and Kentish walnuts produced by us. Combined with direct links to individual farmers across Spain, Italy, and France. The goal of the CIC is to expand UK agroforestry. All profit from the trade is invested into creat-ing farms which combine tree crops with cereal farms. This involves the farm planning, infra-structure investment, and tree purchase. The combination of rows of nut trees with cereal farms has great capacity to address some of the biggest environmental challenges facing arable farmers; primarily soil loss, fertility reduction, and nitrate run-off. Alley cropping, pictured below, reduces soil loss by an average of 50% and cuts nitrate run-off by 35%. Current partner farms are based in Suffolk, Kent, and Devon.
