With our roots well and truly established in Lincolnshire soil our community is very special to our family. We have been on our farm for four generations and as the largest employer in our area, we are proud to have local families working with us. Investing in our community is something very close to our hearts.
As a well established farming family in Alford, Lincolnshire, Fairburn’s have very close links to the community. Being involved with people in the locality is second nature and something which Leslie James Fairburn, Stuart and now Daniel Fairburn will continue to do. With an “open house” policy, hosting farm visits, welcoming farming groups, leading industry and retail partners, as well as school parties is something the family enjoy.
There is great pleasure for Fairburn’s in putting something back into the county and they are keen to be involved with ventures big and small. Proud to be involved with local schools, L J Fairburn and Son Limited make donations to Willoughby and Huttoft primary schools and provide sponsorship for an achievement award at John Spendluffe Foundation Technology College.
Land next to the milling site at Huttoft, Alford has been donated to the local council where a play area and football pitch has been installed for youngsters. The shirts for three junior football teams, Alford Town, Lincoln City under-9s and Manor FC Chad League under-10s in Nottingham are sponsored, as well as the stage at the local annual music festival and the Belchford Downhill Challenge, a legendary soapbox race in the area. Fairburn’s also support the local manor house fruit gardens and help with the maintenance of local churches.
On a larger scale, the regional brand, Fairburn’s Lincolnshire Free Range is generating significant funds for the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance. One penny per dozen eggs sold in both ASDA and the Co-operative goes directly to the very deserving charity. The development of other Fairburn’s branded products will see more charities benefit in the future.
Further afield, L J Fairburn and Son Limited started working with Farm Africa in 2013. The family plan to support this charity in several ways, one of which will see Daniel Fairburn climbing Kilimanjaro in September. He is looking forward to rising to the challenge and raising much needed funding for the charity.
