Caring for our environment
Chelbury Mushrooms care about the world we live in and want our customers to enjoy our mushrooms knowing they are produced in a sustainable and responsible way.
Recently the farm at Southam has installed an Air Source Heat Pump, the system takes air from the outside and rather than burning fuel to create heat, the device moves heat from one place to another thus using less fossil fuels.
Once the crop has finished its growth the “spent” organic compost is taken away by local farmers to spread on their organic land as fertilising mulch. It maintains the soil and increases the nutrients. It will improve the soil structure and helps existing soil food more readily available to plants. Spent compost helps retain moisture in the soil and most importantly reduces the number of weeds that grow.
