Energy consumption is overlooked by many farming systems across the world. We feel it is essential that in addition to farming sustainably, one must address energy consumption for both business and personal needs.
Over the years we have installed wind and solar power systems on the farm which provide a large proportion of our electricity needs. More recently we have build our "boiler room" (pictured above) housing our solid fuel bio-mass boiler system which utilises the sustainable source of timber we have planted on the farm.
Our boiler provides all the heating and hot water requirements of the farm and the solar panel tiles on the roof provide the majority of our electrical demands.
