The Organic Research Centre

The Organic Research Centre (ORC) is a small charity, yet we are the UK’s leading independent research organisation for agroecological farming approaches such as organic and agroforestry; we drive our own research agenda to tackle global issues by acting locally and finding community-based solutions for farmers and their supply chains.

We work to deliver and co-innovate practical, sustainable land management and food production solutions that produce quality food, minimise resource use and protect and enhance the environment.
