Whole Health Agriculture
Welcome to Whole Health Agriculture (WHAg), a community of farmers, consumers, and health professionals united in our aim to support and develop holistic farming which we believe holds the key to positive health.
We define holistic farming or ‘whole health’ farming as those approaches that reduce or avoid synthetic drugs and toxic chemicals, and that foster natural resilience and vitality in their livestock and on their farm. Holistic farming respects the fundamental truth that our own health is linked to the health of the entire farm and the wider environment.
Recognition and reward for holistic farming and food production systems that respect the entire ecosystem.
To promote the concept and practice of holistic farming systems which enhance the health and wellbeing of soil, plants, animals and people.
Intensive farming and food production systems have contributed to:
– antibiotic resistance
– environmental damage
– poor animal welfare
– food that is low in nutritional value, high in toxic residues
– disconnection between farmers and their communities
We are starting to see challenges to conventional farming attitudes and practices but we are a long way from fully joined up thinking in terms of what is really ‘healthy’ in farming and food production.
WHAg is on a mission. Our ultimate aim is to show the potential and credibility of holistic farming to clean up the food chain and restore health. In order to do this we need to educate both farmers and consumers (that’s all of us who eat! )
This is a big aim – we realise that – and our first step is to showcase those farmers who are doing it well in order to inspire other farmers to follow suit and consumers to become holistic food champions!
We cannot do it without you; we need you to join our community (it’s free!) so that we can demonstrate that there is support for this important initiative.
