What environmental policies do Marshfield Farm have?

March 23, 2022

As a business, Marshfield Farm is continually working to minimise its environmental footprint and has always embraced new green energy developments.

On the farm, we aim to be at the forefront of green energy: we endeavour to minimalise our environmental footprint by using a wood pellet boiler (which means our factory is 100% carbon neutral), borehole and heat recovery systems to reduce energy output directly from milk production. While our application for a wind turbine was turned down as the farm land is classified as outstanding natural beauty, 500 photovoltaic solar panels provide approximately 30% of all our electricity requirements.

Our air miles are as low as possible: 75% of the ingredients we use are from within 50 miles of the farm, 95% of the food the cows eat is produced on the farm and, because all our products are made on the farm, there are just a few yards between the milking parlour and the ice cream parlour so lots of travel is on foot!
