We are proud to be working with the following charities to help conserve and protect not just the British countryside, but also the Earth’s rainforest communities. Find out more about our partners, their great work and why Dengie chooses to support them.
The county’s leading conservation charity, committed to protecting wildlife and inspiring a lifelong love of nature. With our main production site being situated in the heart of Essex and our inherent relationship with the land we understand the importance of sustainable farming. It is why many of our farmers choose to grow the alfalfa itself as they recognise the benefits this incredible plant offers to the soil, wildlife and wider environment. By supporting Essex Wildlife Trust, we are in turn supporting many of their projects which include a Barn owl conservation project, purchasing land to provide wildlife corridors and introducing Black Honey bees and Polecats back to the area.

We all rely on rainforest, no matter where we may be in the world. Balancing the climate, protecting wildlife and supporting society; it’s importance cannot be understated. Cool Earth’s vision is a world where tropical deforestation and degradation has no role in climate change. Effective conservation is only possible when local people who are uniquely suited to manage, protect, and restore rainforest, are put first. This ethos resonates with everyone at Dengie as we grow rather than buy the majority of the ingredients we use in our feeds and our success is determined by how we nurture our alfalfa and care for the environment it is grown in. Our farmers know their soil better than anyone and can see the benefits alfalfa has for the crops that follow it too.
