Helping farmers put real health on our plates

Home

Welcome to Whole Health Agriculture

We provide information, education, and support to farmers seeking alternatives to synthetic chemicals, antibiotics, and artificial interventions.

Inclusive & Sustainable

WHAg is a not-for-profit community of farmers, health professionals and citizens, dedicated to teaching, supporting and promoting whole health farming systems and practices.

We document and amplify the experiences and voices of farmers who successfully practice natural and altrnative approaches to farm and livestock health management.

You have to join the dots as everything is linked. For true health you have to consider every element of the farm

Supporting Farmers

Farmers are increasingly under pressure to reduce antibiotics and synthetic wormers, and to use fewer pesticides and herbicides. Furthermore, farmers seeking low residue, nature-friendly, or holistic alternatives can find themselves unsupported, with little information on effective alternatives or how to use them.

We signpost available options, all used by farmers, teach and offer knowledge exchange on best practice, and provide community and support to help farmers 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.

Genetic Technologies (Precision Breeding) Bill – latest update 11 October 2022

UK and EU supermarkets must support GMO regulation says Beyond GM article.  

A coalition of 64 leaders from food, farming, religion, business, philanthropy and academia in the UK and in Europe have written to supermarkets with businesses in both the UK and EU, calling on them to support strong regulation of gene edited products and to protect consumer choice.

The letter comes as the UK presses ahead with plans for the near total deregulation of genetically engineered crops and foods and eventually livestock in England, including the removal of traceability and monitoring requirements and environmental assessments. Government says it wants to see the bill signed into law before the end of the year.

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.
