  Our Green Ethos

Marian & Jim Candy with their family, have always been interested in ecology and wildlife and this is evident in the way the farm is run. Their life revolves around the seasons and a natural way of life without too many of the trappings of modern living. You will be free from commercial influences to enjoy nature and family life in all its glory.

Roof and spring water are being used to provide water for the farm animals, thanks to a Farm and Environment Link Project grant. Logs from the farm are used in the stove which heats the house and water for the house and showers. This is supplemented with energy from solar panels, which have been fitted to the roof of the log store. The boiler can also burn wood pellets, made from waste wood from the timber industry.

Jim and Marian are constantly trying to reduce energy consumption, not only to reduce costs, but also to reduce CO2 emissions, and buy green electricity from Good Energy
