ECO FriENdly!!

We recognise that our company has an impact on the environment. Our ongoing aim is to reduce, re-use and re-cycle as much as possible.

Eco Farmer - We feel we are guardians of our farmland and the woodland we own. Maintaining the hedges, ditches, soil quality, animals, flora and fauna that live here are important to us. Dragonflies can be seen on our woodland walk, Sherford river, lake and ponds. The gardens we plant result in attracting bees to pollinate. Every Company's actions have a direct impact on the environment. It is our responsibility to consider this for future generations.

To become an Eco-Farmer we have to regularly evaluate how we do things and how the impact the planet.

What is Farmer Palmers doing to help save the planet?

As Farmers who have diversified these are some of the measures now in place :

    1. Giving  10% off admission for Green Tourism Partners Guests* (terms apply) Sorry, no discount available during social distancing or online ticketing. 
    2. Reducing traffic by encouraging public transport. The bus stops at the end of our drive. We offer a 10% discount off admission for visitors with a valid bus ticket Sorry, no discount available during social distancing or online ticketing.
    3.  Energy Performance Asset rating was assessed at the Hen House Restaurant. As a result, we scored 54 with a C Rating - not bad for a converted silage pit!
    4. We harness the sun with our 48 photo-voltaic solar panels on the Hen House roof. Additionally, we have a Genysis solar water heater for the Kitchen.
    5. Installing a biomass boiler, therefore, reducing our environmental impact on electricity to provide hot water and heat.
    6. A huge onsite sewerage treatment tank makes us self sufficient, hence we return clean water to the River.
    7. Furthermore, recycling cardboard & plastic reduces global deposits to landfill
    8. Food waste goes into an anaerobic digestion system
    9. Cooking oil is sent to be recycled too.
    10. Another area we encourage clients to help us is to recycle their rubbish in labeled bins.
    11. Nature is important. We support charities including BUGLIFE found here.  British Dragonfly Society

As a consequence, it is our ongoing aim to continue to identify and reduce our environmental impact. We have effective measures to minimize waste and energy consumption through implementing recycling, purchasing and monitoring policies.
