One of Britain’s leading hop suppliers helped raise funds for farmers in need in May. Hops have been grown at Stocks Farm in the village of Suckley – on the border of Herefordshire and Worcestershire – for more than two centuries, but recently they turned their hand to fundraising.
Last October, Ali and Richard Capper (below) began selling small vac-packs of HomeBrew hops to customers direct from their website, www.stocksfarm.net. Throughout May, they donated £1 to R.A.B.I for every website purchase and raised a fantastic £75.
Those behind the business recognise the work R.A.B.I does in the farming community and Richard said: “There are many issues facing English agriculture today from concerns regarding water, labour and climate change to cost pressures and inflation of energy costs. We do our best to support the industry in raising awareness of these issues.”
Kate Jones, R.A.B.I Regional Manager for the West Midlands, said: “We’re delighted that Stocks Farm chose to raise both funds and awareness for R.A.B.I, we’re always looking out for more volunteers, fundraising opportunities and ways to increase awareness of the difficulties farmers face.”
