The Fowey Valley bumblebee project links national science and conservation charity the Bumblebee Conservation Trust with local businesses, farmers and landowners and scientists from the University of Exeter. The project will be managed by the Bumblebee Conservation Trust and funded by the Prince of Wales Charitable Foundation and Kelly’s of Cornwall.
Bumblebees are wild pollinators, which are essential for sustainable farming but declining worldwide for a variety of complex reasons. When land is managed appropriately, farmed countryside can provide a home for bumblebees whilst still producing food and helping to reverse pollinator decline.
Kelly’s partnership with Bumblebee Conservation Trust
Kelly’s only uses fresh milk and cream from local Cornish dairy herds, meaning our ingredients are sourced just down the road from our factory in Bodmin. We have partnered with the Bumblebee Conservation Trust, supporting sustainable local farming which will give better, bumblebee friendly pastures.
Better Pastures = Happy Cows = Good Quality Dairy!
