14Aug2011: How to save on energy bills - open day

Sunday 14th Aug 2011
Cottage Farm
Open Day

As part of the National Superhomes scheme (, Cottage Farm will again be opening its doors to the public.

Cottage Farm is an organic sustainable farm raising native breeds and selling produce locally. It is powered by renewable energy with near zero use of fossil fuels, having reduced its carbon emissions by over 100% (as assessed by the Cornwall Sustainable Building Trust) and practicing carbon neutral living and farming. We are also of course actively engaged in the Transition process.

Visitors will be able to see and ask questions about
· the various energy saving steps taken
· the various methods of renewable energy generation employed and its benefits
· the organic farming methods, localised sustainable food production and carbon free deliveries of Cottage Farm fresh meat boxes.
· We may also discuss the Superhomes charity and Transition Movement and its contribution to increasing local resilience in North Cornwall.
