Hurley to supply organic meat from her 400-acre farm
Model and sometime actress Elizabeth Hurley and Prince Charles are hooking up to start an organic foods venture.
The unlikely pair have announced that they’re joining forces to launch a new range of ‘modern, healthy organic food’. Hurley will supply organic meat from her 400-acre farm for the Prince’s sustainable food brand Duchy Originals.
The 43-year-old actress-turned-farmer has already found success selling her humanely-raised beef, pork, and lamb to leading chefs and farmers markets around the UK. Her association with the Royals will do even more to expand her fledgling empire.
‘His Royal Highness The Prince of Wales is an inspiration to me because of his passionate belief in organic food and farming and his unwavering commitment to help protect and sustain the countryside,’ Hurley said.
‘I feel honoured to be working with Duchy Originals and am extremely excited about the products we are developing together.’
However, Hurley has previously come under fire from animal rights groups for promoting the meat scene. Last July PETA sent her a letter urging her ‘to allow the piglets, calves and lambs on your land to live out their natural lives in comfort and safety’ and join the organisation in ‘promoting a healthy vegetarian diet.’ CLICK HERE FOR MORE HEALTH NEWS
