Supporting Farmers in Scotland Since 1893
ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY farming champions the Soil Association have a couple of events coming up this month, free for farmers and land managers to attend.
A NEW compact anaerobic digester aimed specifically at the farm market has been launched by Devon-based developers NGB.

THIS SPRING saw Keswick farmer, Steven Clarke, take a different direction in diversification when he planted 28 acres of willow.
INCREASING numbers of homes and businesses are recognising the environmental, efficiency and economic benefits of switching to wood-fired heating systems - but there is still confusion about which fuel source to opt for.
IN A major coup, VG Energy has signed a new dealer agreement with the world's leading manufacturer of heating technology systems, Viessmann.
FARMERS CONSIDERING making the switch to a wood-fuelled heating system have been made an offer that may prove hard to refuse - a biomass boiler system, free of charge.
THE BENEFITS of woodfuel were top of the agenda at an event held at Hopetoun Estate, near Edinburgh last week.

SCOTTISH FARMERS with an interest in renewable technology were able to take advantage of an on-farm demo day organised by NFU Scotland's Renewable Development Initiative last week.
