We are proud to have been awarded the Suffolk Carbon Charter Gold accreditation.

At Lindsey Lodge Farm we have been recording and assessing the impact of our farming activities on  the environment for 12 years. This enables us to better understand and become much more efficient at what we do.

  •  
  • We take monthly readings of electricity, water and gas meters

  • We take meter readings from the Solar Panels generating electricity; and from the ground sourced heat pump used to heat farm buildings

  • From these readings we calculate the total carbon footprint of all our farming activities

  • We are able to calculate the quantity of water required to produce one tonne of strawberries 

  • Similarly, we calculate the amount of Nitrogen, Phosphate and Potassium required to produce one tonne of strawberries.

  • We manage and enhance the natural environment: conservation areas feed birds overwinter and butterflies and bees during the summer; trees and hedges are managed carefully

 

                                    .............and much more!
