Gloucestershire Orchard Group - Seventy-five per cent of Gloucestershire's orchards have been lost in the past 50 years. Agricultural changes and lack of demand, foreign competition and finally the supermarket all aided the demise of many local orchards and varieties. Despite this decline, Gloucestershire still has areas where orchards form a strong traditional landscape character; the Berkeley Vale and Dymock area still contain a noticeable number of orchard trees with many local varieties.
Gloucester Cattle Society - Gloucester cattle are an irreplaceable part of our living heritage and are being preserved for future generations by members of the Society. They are strikingly beautiful and ideal for parkland management and conservation management. They produce food 'slowly' for maximum taste; the beef is sought after and Single and Double Gloucester cheese world famous.
Gloucestershire Old Spots Pig Breeders Club - The GOSPBC was established in 1990 to promote the breed and help breeders. With members in the UK, Ireland, France, America and Poland, it is very proactive in fulfilling its objectives. The club is managed by an elected committee and has a full constitution with regular AGMs.
Specialist Cheese Makers Association - The Specialist Cheesemakers Association (SCA) is an alliance of cheesemakers, retailers, wholesalers and cheese lovers that offers an opportunity to share ideas and increase sales of British cheese.
