How did we achieve the lowest recorded carbon footprint in dairy farming in the UK?

We have reduced our carbon emissions by an average of 30% across our dairy activities since 2014 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 now aim to go further and become a net zero carbon operation by 2030. 

Grosvenor Farms has 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.
