Working outside with animals is never as easy as it looks – especially when you’re also battling the cold winter weather!
At the Cornish Seal Sanctuary, a rescue haven for seal pups and resident seals that can no longer live in the wild, the animal care team often faces working in wet and freezing conditions, which means high-quality outdoor wear is an absolute must.
Rockfish was founded in 2003 and is a family run business that is based at an organic farm in Cornwall, spending much of their time in wellingtons boots and having been let down by other brands they set out to create their own.
Inspired by the local coastline, ocean, the granite terrain and large amounts of mud on the farm, they had the perfect setting to test out their range. The Groundhog boots have been created with natural rubber and the Rockfish formulation that aims to ensure the rubber doesn’t perish prematurely. This particular boot has been produced to thrive in liveries and stables yards but of course it isn’t limited to that environment and are suitable for gardeners, walkers, campers and fishermen. The Groundhog boots are fully vegan, and Rockfish are even attempting to ensure all their materials are sustainable, recycled, recyclable and bio-degradable alternatives by 2023.
