Our story

by Ian Horton from Gander's Goat - Zero Carbon Tour interview

At Gander's Goat, we have done a number of things on the farm to cut carbon emissions. The first one is to look at installing renewable energy such as solar and wind as well as bio gas digesters. One of the main things we have done is change farming practise from standard sheep grazing to strip grazing with higher numbers of animals, in a smaller space, increasing the amount of carbon that is being stored in the soil.
