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.  

Allergen information  

Most of the food and drink served in our café’s, restaurants and tea-rooms is prepared on site in our kitchens, using a wide range of ingredients. As a result, we can’t guarantee that any of our food and drink products are completely allergen free. If you have an allergy or intolerance, please ask the café staff who will be happy to advise on the ingredients in your food and drink.
