A COLDHAM farm welcomed a Lord and a Labour MP for a fact-finding visit.
Lord Jim Knight and Gavin Shuker, Labour MP for Luton South, visited Hall Farm, where they learnt about The Co-operative’s farm and its various environmental and educational projects.
The pair, from Labour’s shadow Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, visited The Co-operative’s first windfarm, which was set up at Coldham in 2005 and learnt more about “From Farm to Fork”, a project launched last year following a £130,000 investment.
They also heard about the “Habitat Heroes” project, a national scheme to protect and preserve wildlife.
Tom Paybody, farm manager at Coldham, said: “We were delighted to welcome Lord Jim Knight and Gavin Shuker MP and showcase our operation, especially our windfarm, Habitat Heroes and From Farm to Fork projects, and give them a greater understanding of The Co-operative’s farming business.”
