The farm routinely use the greenhouse gas emissions data to improve their farming practices to further reduce greenhouse emissions increase farm biodiversity, water quality and animal welfare.
The farm also operates a small anaerobic digester to make electric and heat from animal slurry and waste feed resulting in a large electric surplus to provide power outside of the business and eliminate the need to buy in fertiliser for the farm.
