Abstract

The broad aim of this research is to provide a study on the impact and added value to farmers when adopting LEAF Marque. It is based on thirty-seven interviews with LEAF Marque certified businesses, interviewed between December 2016 and February 2017. Twenty-five of these interviewees took part as anonymous contributors, while twelve have also prepared case studies. The evidence in the report is in three sections, an overview analysis based on the questionnaire, an analysis of the narratives regarding the benefits of participation and a collection of case studies. More specifically the report focuses on identifying the financial, environmental and social benefits that can be attributed to LEAF Marque, and Integrated Farm Management (IFM) farm practices.
