We will meet at Cobbles Kitchen & Deli before setting off by coach to the Anaerobic Digestion plant at Parc Stormy, Stormy Down.
The site takes around three quarters of the food waste from local authorities in Wales. A local farmer has the exclusive contract to provide the green crop to add to the waste to ensure that it is not too rich for spreading on the land.
The biomass boiler is used to dry wheat and has resulted in substantial time saving in the process. It is far more efficient and means that harvesting can take place when the protein content of the wheat is at its highest, meaning that they are not so weather dependent upon when they can harvest.
Members will see how this collaboration has significantly improved the quality of the soil at the farm and will learn not only how this has been achieved, but also about maintaining the standards that that have been set.
Lunch and the formal AGM will follow after returning to the award-winning Cobbles Kitchen & Deli.
