Our values

Sustainable production is at the heart of National Trust values today.  The National Trust team are the winners of several awards for the pioneering use of sustainably produced food in our cafés.  As a conservation charity we are unique in how we cater for millions of visitors every year by putting welfare and conservation, not profit, at the heart of everything we do.

Today the National Trust is the UK’s biggest farmer looking after over 600,000 acres of farmland with our tenant farmers.  Whether it’s for the Bensons juices in your glass or the butter you put on your scones, we require all our farmers to use nature friendly farming techniques.  For things we can’t produce ourselves we apply these same regulations to all our external suppliers too.  That’s why you will see labels such as ‘farm assured’, ‘free range’ and ‘rainforest alliance’ throughout our cafés. 

Every sip, nibble and crunch helps us to look after special places.
