Low carbon at Bore Place: Since 2003 Bore Place has been committed to exploring and undertaking different measures to achieve a low carbon emissions site. We audit and monitor our progress and continue to seek ways to further reduce our carbon emissions. Our highlights: Data suggests we have achieved an approximate reduction of carbon emissions by 50%. This has largely been achieved through the installation of renewable energy installations:-
2010 Solar Thermal panels installed for heating and water
2011 Solar Photovoltaic panels installed for electricity generation
2012 Wind turbine installed for electricity
2015 Biomass energy used for onsite heating and water
The woodlands, ponds, hedges and small grassland areas at Bore Place are managed to improve their value to wildlife. This is part of a whole farm plan which allows farming and wildlife to co-exist within day to day farm management. The farm is organic, dairy and we have organic veg gardens on site as well.
