Reducing our Carbon Footprint

Solar panels

A full recycling programme is part of every day life at Horseshoe Cottage Farm. Locally sourced meat and produce are used and the compost helps to grow wonderful vegetables in the kitchen garden. Solar panels have helped reduce our electricity bill by 59%. Energy saving bulbs have replaced the higher wattage ones throughout the house where appropriate. Showers are installed in all bathrooms.
