Welcome to Whole Health Agriculture
We are a small not-for-profit providing information, education, and support to farmers seeking alternatives to synthetic chemicals, antibiotics, and artificial interventions.
WE NEED YOUR SUPPORT TO THRIVE!
Inclusive & Sustainable
WHAg is a community of farmers, health professionals and citizens, dedicated to teaching, supporting and promoting whole health farming systems and practices.
We document the experiences and amplify the voices of farmers who protect our collective health through the effective use of low residue, nature-friendly systems of farm management.

“You have to join the dots as everything is linked. For true health you have to consider every element of the farm“
Sally Wood – Organic Dairy Farmer
Farmers are increasingly under pressure to reduce antibiotics and synthetic wormers, and to use fewer pesticides and herbicides. But those seeking alternatives can struggle to find reliable information on options that will work for them, or support on how to implement new systems.
We signpost alternative methods successfully used by farmers, teach and share knowledge on best practice, and provide community and support to help farmers adopt and integrate changes.
Explore our Farm Health Hub for a wide range of information. Visit our Learning Centre for farmer-tested courses, webinars and community options.
Joining the Dots
We are building connections between farmers and citizens to increase awareness and build support for whole health farming practices.
Whole health farming respects the entire farm, working with rather than against nature, employing systems that encourage biodiversity.
A whole health approach fosters vibrant health and resilience in livestock and crops which ultimately protects and improves our collective health.

WHAT WE ARE ABOUT
At the Wales Real Food & Farming Conference we brought together doctors and farmers (and one doctor-turned-farmer) in a fascinating discussion on health in farming and food, in our session: Managing Health from Farm to Fork.
At the Oxford Real Farming Conference ORFC22, our presentation on Reducing Antibiotic and Anthelmintic use through Homeopathy, Herbs and Medicinal Plants by Lawrence Woodward, vet Chris Aukland, herbalist and shepherdess Kate Scott is now available to view.
Underpinning the ethics of WHAg
And, for a deeper dive into the evolution of the agro-ecological movement and the principles that move and shake us at WHAg, read our Chair, Lawrence Woodward’s enlightening essay…..
Making Health Infectious – from organic principles to Whole Health Agriculture.
“….we do know there are some things which are likely to be important and which farmers should pay attention to; these revolve around managing the soil and above and below ground livestock through biological system management and not through inputs whether these are synthetic or organic.”
It is vitally important that…….farming delivers the highest quality, best-tasting food, produced without artificial chemicals or genetic modification, and with respect for animal welfare and the environment, while helping to maintain the landscape and rural communities.
