Low Carbon Farming
The Oasthouse team founded Low Carbon Farming in 2016 to develop a unique series of world first greenhouses in the UK. After several years of development work the Company raised £120m from Greencoat Capital.
In January 2021 the first 1 million plants went into our 70 acres of high-tech greenhouses. The greenhouses mark a world first for decarbonisation- capturing waste heat from a waste water treatment works to provide 90% of the heat the greenhouses require. The greenhouses represent a blueprint for low carbon agriculture, but moreover an example of how we can better utilise the resources we find around us.
