Prince Charles


When I first started farming organically my real aim was to explore the best ways of developing a sustainable system of food production. Organic farming was, and still is, the most effective system of applying what I thought to be the principles of sustainable agriculture.

Prince Charles, 1958-

Duke of Cornwall, Prince of Wales and Earl of Chester, Knight of the Garter, Knight of the Thistle. In the Scottish Peerage, Duke of Rothesay, Earl of Carrick and Baron Renfrew, Lord of the Isles, and Prince and Great Steward of Scotland.

As Duke of Cornwall, he is chairman of The Prince’s Council, the supervisory body of the Duchy of Cornwall, which owns about 128,000 acres (51,270 hectares) of land and property in twenty two counties.

The Prince takes a close interest in the estates and farms at Balmoral, Scotland, and Sandringham in Norfolk, although management is in the hands of The Duke of Edinburgh.

In 1990, the Prince created Duchy Originals, (one of the UK’s leading brands of organic food and drink), because of his belief in the clear advantages of organic farming: the production of natural and healthy foods and sound husbandry which helps to regenerate and protect the countryside.

All of the profits from Duchy Originals are donated to The Prince of Wales’ Charitable Foundation.
