St Helen’s Farm, the UK’s leading supplier of goats’ milk products, has announced a partnership with the Yorkshire Wildlife Trust that will see it fund a wildlife viewing point at one of the Trust’s flagship nature reserves.
The new installation point will overlook the reedbed lagoon at North Cave Wetlands, which is home to a vast array of wetland bird species including avocets, shelducks and insects such as dragonflies and a variety of butterflies.
The partnership has developed after the dairy joined the Trust as a Corporate Member earlier in the year.
The dairy, which is part of the Kavli Trust, makes regular donations to local good causes and the St Helen’s Farm team were keen to be involved in a tangible project that would help people enjoy and appreciate local wildlife. The company is proud of its farming roots and a philosophy which seeks to look after the environment. St Helen’s Farm is home to over 63 different species of living on its land including deer, stoats and barn owls.
Support for the Trust is also being promoted across the latest print run of over 1 million milk cartons appearing on shelves in all major retailers over the coming weeks to help spread the word about how the trust works.
St Helen’s Farm marketing manager, Vicky Unwin said: “We are delighted to be working with the Trust on something so close to our heart and can’t wait for the building to begin. We also know that this link will resonate with the interests of our consumers too.
“It is great to be involved with a project that is physically going to leave a St Helen’s Farm legacy at this very special site and enhance the wildlife experience for the thousands of people that visit each year.”
Jono Leadley, Yorkshire Wildlife Trust’s Director of Development said: “North Cave Wetlands is a fantastic nature reserve which attracts people from across Yorkshire to see spectacular wildlife such as avocets and kingfishers.”
