First of all, for us, 'Being
Green' is about doing the right thing.
It is also reflected in what we
do and do NOT do.
Quiet and Quality rooms with full amenities makes our B&B special, but we
are also proud to make this available while running the B&B with a full negative footprint of energy use
and extremely limited CO2 emissions. We produce all of our energy needs for
all of our electric use, complete heating and cooling of the B&B on site
with a 100KW solar panel array. The farm soil underneath is used as pasture
for our sheep so it does double duty.
Our green philosophy is carried on further in
our laundry polices to limit water use;
Lighting and A/C automation and use of modern low energy bulbs to limit
Energy efficient laundry appliances;
Outside around the house we severely limit the use of insecticides
especially in the yards to protect our own drinking water and our animals
exposure. Our yard is mowed less frequent and sheep will do the mowing for
us where possible minimizing in-efficient gasoline powered mowers as much as
For getting our groceries and B&B supplies we use our efficient Ford Fusion
getting over 40 miles per gallon locally.
Of course almost everything is recycled or re-used.
