Our Mission

Lower Park Farm Co-operative was set up to establish a sustainable, environmentally friendly and economically attractive alternative to our reliance on fossil fuel resources.

Our mission is to enable both the farm and the local community to benefit from large-scale renewable energy generation, in a way that does not impact on the rural landscape.

The selected co-operative structure puts communities back in touch with agriculture and sustainable energy for the benefit of all those concerned.

We want to harness the power of the organic waste produced at Lower Park Farm in order to generate clean, green renewable energy using a sustainable financial model.

The Anaerobic Digestion process that we have selected will allow us to do just that.

How Anaerobic Digestion (AD) works

The AD process provides the perfect environment for the micro-organisms (which naturally occur in animal slurry) to convert energy into methane gas.

The gas is captured and stored prior to being burnt through a biogas engine to produce electricity and heat.

The material left over after the digestion process is termed ‘digestate’. This can be separated into liquid and solid forms, both of which are valuable nutrient-rich natural fertilisers.
