We are mindful of our environmental impact and we try to do things differently where we can to minimise this and improve our sustainability.
Reusable Bottles & Cans
Reusable glass bottles are available for purchase from our farm shop. Customers are able to dispense their own milk from our new Milkstation vending machine, keeping waste to a minimum, whilst enjoying the same farm fresh milk we are known for.
For those customers who place regular orders with us, or are just passionate about looking after the planet, our cream now comes in a mini glass bottle, which can be returned to the dairy for refilling.
Refillable Milk Pails
We can supply larger volumes of milk to wholesale customers in a reusable, food grade milk pail. With a 15 litre capacity and a convenient tap for easy dispensing, in a commercial environment, these pails can dramatically reduce the amount of plastic waste entering the recycling system.
We have installed a 50kw solar panel system on the roof of our barn. We use the power generated by these to run the robots and other farm equipment and we have now reached 80% self-sufficiency as a result.
Park Farm is also home to a 22-acre solar park. There are 18,000 panels in the park which produce enough electricity each year to supply 800-850 homes. In the summer months, we graze sheep under the panels and the park is also home to several beehives, with the first swarm due to be sited here in 2019.
