Renewable energy & the environment

Sunset over Mawley

At Mawleytown Farm our aim is to be self-sufficient, including in electricity production.  With our 75kw wind turbine and 100kw solar panels, we are well on the way.  We have recently invested heavily in a slurry-only anaerobic digester.  This captures the gas found naturally in cow poo and is converted to electricity and heat.

As custodians of this wonderful part of Shropshire, we believe it is important to look after our environment for our generation and for those to come.  We are voluntary members of Countryside Steward Schemes.  Wildlife strips left to grow around our fields, bird cover and planting new hedgerows all encourages biodiversity.
