Cheers to new Local Wildlife Partnership

Written by Tom Blakemore

Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust has partnered with one our local breweries, Farr Brew. Farr will be creating a new beer, which will go on sale later in the year, to support the work of the Trust. In addition to the special edition brew, the brewery will work with the Trust to ensure that the area where they grow their hops is wildlife friendly.

Farr Brew have strong environmental credentials and are a finalist in the SIBA (The Society of Independent Brewers) Green Business of the Year Award 2018.

Nick Farr said “Farr Brew’s principles are all about community and the environment we are part of, so partnering with the Trust is a natural decision. We believe that we should all keep the planet as green and beautiful as possible and we try to ensure that conservation is at the heart of any business decision we make. We’re proud of our Hertfordshire home and we’re delighted to be working with the Trust to keep it wild!”

Tim Hill, Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust’s Conservation Manager, said: “We are thrilled to be partnering with Farr Brewery. The brewery shares our love of local wildlife and I look forward to helping manage the land where they grow their hops.”

As part of its new partnership with Farr Brew, Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust is running a competition to name the new beer. The winner will see their successful entry on the beer and also receive a brewery tour for two at Farr Brew and 12 bottles of Farr Brew beer.

Entries should be sent to fundraising@hmwt.org, closing date for submissions is 31st March 2018. Please see terms and conditions at hertswildlifetrust.org.uk/farrbrew.
