THE FARM IS NOW POWERED BY THE WIND!

A 10Kw Bergey wind turbine is now spinning on the windiest, most exposed part of the farm and we hope it will be for the next 25-30 years.

After a particularly windy start to life on the farm, it has managed to supply all the power for the house and farm. Although productivity has dropped, as we spend time either admiring it going round or checking to see what it's generating. Although it's rated 10Kw it's been peaking at 12Kw.

The beauty of it all is when it is finally decommissioned there will only be a 3m square pad of concrete to remove.
