We are committed to reducing our carbon footprint and will source 100% of our electricity from renewable sources. We use our own borehole powered by 100% Green. We have embarked on a program of tree planting and low input grassland management that will benefit the environment as Carbon sinks, further reducing our Carbon Footprint.
Water Conservation and Pollution Control
We take all reasonable measures to use water conservatively and will introduce pollution control measures to minimise run off and Nitrogen saturation. We take measures to ensure that where reasonably possible all cleaning, construction, maintenance and painting materials used at Trenderway are environmentally friendly and responsibly disposed of.
Flora and Fauna
We will manage Trenderway sustainably. We are committed to low impact farming with local breeds. Chemical based products, including fertilizers, are being phased out and will be replaced with organic alternatives, wherever possible. We will take action to increase the biodiversity of both the flora and fauna of the estate in harmony with the farming objectives.
Transport and Local Purchasing
We source local produce and local services wherever possible. Guests are encouraged to enjoy the extensive grounds of the farm and to leave their cars behind.
Waste Management and Recycling
Reduce waste from our activities wherever possible, and where we produce waste we will maximize the amount that is either reused or recycled. All green waste will be retained and composted onsite.
We will act in a socially responsible and ethical manner in the conduct of our business. We will strive towards environmental best practice, supporting local charities, providing opportunity to our students at our local schools to get involved in the farm.
