Teddy is set apart by his commitment to sustainability. Already on the estate are a number of practices that are very forward thinking. The DUST project looks to support farmers who are looking at ways to promote soil health and diversity. On the Chanjul Estate Teddy has incorporated numerous measures to promote a healthy environment. 42 hectares of his 210 total are dedicated to prevention of wasteful use of a resource.
His practices include; soil conservation and waste water treatment.
His commitment does not stop here, Teddy is on the road to an incredible achievement, he is in the process of transitioning to a carbon neutral farm, in today's world seemingly full of chaos, what an incredible aim.
Not only are his environmental practices honourable but he also has a structure for migratory pickers to provide education, in which the workers are taught to read and write. The wage is above the minimum wage and there is a bonus structure in place for the workers.
