Becoming a net zero carbon dairy farm by 2030

Furthering our ambition to be a net zero carbon mixed farming operation by 2030, we are evaluating alternative ways to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases. 

Biomethane can be used for energy production, to fuel heavy goods vehicles as well as contributing to the UK’s resources via the national grid. Through the use of renewable energy from solar panels on our sheds, recycling sand, which is used for bedding and manures, producing organic fertilisers and growing our own forage, we have reduced our carbon emissions by an average of 30% across our dairy activities since 2014. 

We have the lowest carbon footprint for milk production of the farms profiled using Agrecalc – an independent, integrated pollution prevention and control (IPPC) accredited, specialist agricultural resource efficiency calculator which provides the quantity of greenhouse gas emissions produced from routine farm activities up to the farm gate. 

By continuing to adopt and invest in sustainable technologies, we aim to become a net zero carbon farming operation by 2030.
