In September 2014 we invested in Three biomass pods, to safeguard our future farm energy consumption. The great thing is that we use the pruning’s from our orchards to power them!
Each pod is a Forty foot cargo container made to look pregnant at one end with a welded on extension for loading and storage of woodchip.
Inside this is conveyed for clean burning in our mega efficient 199Kw Passat biomass boilers.
This heats hot water which is circulated around our hen houses. Nothing is wasted as any ash produced is an excellent addition to our compost.
