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 an inclusive community of farmers, health professionals and citizens, dedicated to supporting and promoting those who farm for health and vitality.
We believe that true health is dependent on the health of the food that we eat, which is in itself linked to the sustainable health of the whole farm.
“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
We know that farmers care about all elements of farm health, are often seeking alternative options, but don’t always know where to find information on best practice or get support to integrate changes.
Our aim is for farmers to feel encouraged to farm for real health, and to feel supported by the public through recognition of the contribution they make to our collective wellness.
We know that people care where their food comes from, and how it is grown and raised. We aim to build connections between farmers and citizens to help people feel better informed about food and farming.
Our aim is for people to understand that our own health is linked to the way our food has been produced, so that they can make choices which encourage farming practices that put real health on our plates.

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.
