In 1986, The Prince of Wales "decided to convert the Duchy Home Farm to a completely organic system to demonstrate the environmental and commercial benefits. ... The Prince is Patron of the Rare Breeds Survival Trust and has worked for many years to help preserve the rare native breeds of the UK, which have been replaced over the years by foreign breeds and breeding programmes more suited to intensive farming methods. Animals such as Tamworth and Large Black pigs, Irish Moiled, Gloucester, Shetland and British White cattle, as well as Hebridean and Cotswold sheep feature at the farm, and are highly prized by The Prince for the quality of their produce and their natural affinity with the British farming landscape.

"The first product in the Duchy Originals range was the Oaten biscuit made with organic oats from Home Farm in 1992. Years later, the organic food business sells a range of products from garden furniture to jams. All profits go to The Prince's Charities Foundation." [1]
