Ok, so we’ve left it a bit late for New Year resolutions but we do have a few thoughts for the year. We did try and calculate our Carbon Footprint last year for Open Farm Sunday and came up with a figure (showing a carbon credit) that was probably wildly inaccurate but it did get us thinking. Luckily some greater minds than ours have been on the case and they have come up with the Farm Carbon Cutting Toolkit. We are about to embark on the process, watch this space to see how we get on. We’ll let you know the good, bad and ugly points – we assume that the way we farm here is sustainable but are to happy to make changes where needed if we can do things better. We are also in the second year of a 5 year trial with Thames Water looking at improving soil health using a no-till regime (no ploughing) – yields weren’t great for year 1 but hopefully by year 5 we will see both improvements and savings.
We will continue to stock the cleaning product re-fills from SESI and Green My Business, please let us know if there is anything else you’d like us to have.
