Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust (HMWT) has teamed up with Farr Brew.

The Wheathampstead-based brewery will create a new beer that will go on sale later in the year to support the work of the trust.

In addition to the special edition brew, the brewery will work with HMWT to ensure that the area where it grows its hops is wildlife friendly.

Tim Hill, Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust’s conservation manager, said: “We are thrilled to be partnering with Farr Brewery.

“The brewery shares our love of local wildlife and I look forward to helping manage the land where they grow their hops.”

Farr Brew has strong environmental credentials and is a finalist in the SIBA (The Society of Independent Brewers) Green Business of the Year Award 2018.

“We believe that we should all keep the planet as green and beautiful as possible and we try to ensure that conservation is at the heart of any business decision we make.

“We’re proud of our Hertfordshire home and we’re delighted to be working with the Trust to keep it wild!”
