The Dees and staff at West Lodge are committed to making the farm as sustainable as possible. So far all the heating on the farm site is provided by a biomass boiler and a large part of the farm is given over to a solar park providing electricity to the national grid.

Consumables are chosen on the environmental credentials and ease of recycling but there is much more to be done. Over the next few years more solar panels, wind turbines and battery systems are planned to help with lighting, greater use of recycling and on the farm a large rewilding project to support all the wildlife on the farm.
