Shakestones farm is a family owed farm that has been within the Day family since the 1940s. The farm is a working farm growing Wheat, Oats and Haylage Grass. Located on the farm is Shakestones Business Centre, agricultural buildings and office spaces rented to local businesses.
With a mission to become a more environmentally responsibly farm, since 2012 we have been using solar panels, a renewable energy source that also reduces carbon emissions.
In 2014 we invested into woodchip biomass boilers to provide heating to the poultry housing and wider farm. With significant environmental benefits over traditional fossil fuel we believe this is a great step in the right direction to make our farm more environmentally conscious.
