Nene Valley Beef powered by solar

Fromant & Sanders produce Nene Valley Beef in the rolling countryside and river meadows to the west of Northampton. Animals are reared on the farm by a welfare-friendly, extensive rearing system using traditional grass meadows for summer grazing and home-grown cereals and silage for their winter feed. Using this system, the animals have acres to roam over in the summer and are not crowded or rushed when they are housed in the winter.

In keeping with the natural way the beef is raised, the owners have invested in renewable energy and installed a 50kW solar photovoltaic system on the roof of the newest cattle barn on the Clarke’s Lodge site.
