    Hi Sue

    I was lucky enough to get married at Beechenhill (astoundingly, four-and-a-half years ago) and it was truly wonderful. We felt that by choosing Beechenhill we were able to have a green wedding, almost without trying: we reduced ‘food miles’ by using local produce and actual miles, through employing local tradespeople and being ‘on site’ ourselves. For someone looking to have a green wedding, I’m sure there are endless other opportunities to do so at Beechenhill.

    Good luck with the competition and all the best,

    what happens to your cows after they complete the milking days?

    • sueprince says:

      In an organic system we try and keep our cows healthy for as long as possible. They are not stressed or treated with routine anti biotics. Ours is a small settled closed herd. Our oldest cow is 10 years old. In many conventional herds the cows are only 5 years old (having done 3 lactations) when they are got rid of. When the cows do eventually finish being productive, they sold for meat.
