Source for Business has helped a second generation farm in Truro save thousands of litres of water and consequently thousands of pounds from its water bills.
Hillview Farm nestled in Allet, Truro boasts a herd of 80 cows, 120 acres of cereals and 80 acres of potatoes.
Significant amounts of potable water were used for crop spraying and by cattle, generating substantial water and sewerage charges whilst contributing to the carbon footprint from the wholesaler in production. The industrial meat production complex also used a lot of water, almost a third of the water footprint of the total agricultural production.
Kevin Williams the farm's owner, approached Source for Business in 2019 as he wanted to reduce his £16,000 p.a. water bill and improve his bottom line, whilst supporting the UK's water sustainability and carbon reduction goals.
At Source for Business, we recognise the challenges faced by Hillview Farm as typical of those experienced by many businesses in the agriculture sector. We always recommend looking at what nature can provide at a lower cost whilst maintaining the security of supply provided by a mains connection.
