The article focuses on the Greener for Life, a scheme to add value to farmer's produce, established with the help from milk producer Winston Reed in Devon, England. Reed seeks to educate the public about the source of their food, create conservation projects and see farmers earn more money though the scheme. Farm produce will be sold at a premium, under the Greener for Life logo. Reed is still in negotiation with a number of supermarkets about introducing Greener for Life milk into their stores.
