Our Story

Dengie started over 50 years ago and the farming families who founded the company still grow the alfalfa today. They all farm in a special part of Essex and have an inherent relationship with the land. They know and understand the importance of sustainable farming – it is why many choose to grow the alfalfa itself as they recognise the benefits this incredible plant offers to the soil, wildlife and wider environment. Dengie Doesn’t Cost the Earth is our commitment to ensure that sustainability remains at the heart of everything we do and our promise that we will always be working hard to improve the ways in which we do things.
