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. AD does not rely on the wind blowing, the sun shining or the water flowing – AD utilises farm wastes and enables a significant reduction of the carbon footprint in the production of our food.
The Tomlinsons are fully committed to the co-operative movement. All of the organic milk produced at Lower Park Farm is sold through Calon Wen – the Welsh Organic Milk Co-operative that Richard co-founded around fifteen years ago. Forming another co-operative to fund the building of the AD at Lower Park Farm makes perfect sense.
This Co-operative structure puts rural communities back in touch with agriculture and sustainable energy for the benefit of all those concerned.
