OUR BRAND VALUES*

Pixley is increasingly conscious of the need to grow plants which reduce the need for direct control of pests and diseases and require only judicious use of fertiliser. The result of less synthetic treatments at Pixley is a beneficial increase in ants, as evidenced by increased numbers of Green Woodpeckers. The ants like to 'farm' a 'stem' aphid which they protect from predators such as ladybirds, of which numbers have increased. This creates an interesting ecology of all three, together with the honeydew of the aphids, so loved by the ants. On the headlands nettles and other things are allowed to prosper encouraging a natural habitat for butterflies, moths and their larvae. The vapourer moth is quite special. We will not spray against it. The little fellows turn into quite spectacular caterpillars. The Comma butterfly loves to feed on blackcurrants and nettles. Recently Pixley enjoyed an army of frogs and toads. This indicates that Pixley's reservoirs are clean and free from fertiliser. All signs of our keenness to let nature reassert its balance - but it can be nerve-jangling! All berries are produced under Assured Produce guidelines with defined policies in place addressing the many issues of the countryside, bio-diversity and food standards. Pixley Berries is proud of its rural heritage and shares it with many of its neighbours. We enjoy several hectares of ancient woodland, a number of old coppices and old orchards.
