Excitedly Carbon Neutral

Neutral, yet excited – a contradiction in words to be Excitedly Carbon Neutral, but it’s true! AND excited we are, as we have just won the Love Local Trust Local’s Conservation & Environment Sustainability Award.

We have been recycling onsite and environmentally conscious at the farm for years anyway, but we’ve been recently working with Climate Partner.com to confirm we are Carbon Neutral and have the certificate to say so.

We have measured our farm’s operational carbon footprint to be carbon neutral, and compensated for these emissions through investing in a renewable energy project. Most importantly, we are actively reducing our carbon footprint, to decrease the amount we need to offset annually, and will continue to do so.

Our first reduction initiatives across both the farm operations and our products include:

  • Air source heat pumps in the office.
  • 600 solar panels.
  • Efficient first stage cooling, and novel second stage cooling.
  • Fit for purpose, recyclable and sustainable packaging.
  • Focused effort to re-use carboard and plastic waste, recycling where re-use isn’t possible.
  • Reducing the need for food-ware at events (any bowl’s the goal), using recyclable food-ware.
  • Sending dairy waste to an anaerobic plant to be turned into useful resources like fertiliser.
