'Our attitude to the environment comes from our values, particularly growing up as farmers and living and working in the same place all our lives. This has given us an intimate knowledge of the land here- the soil, the trees, wildlife and landscape. We want to run our business in a way that is in keeping with our values and that adds something to our local and wider environment.'

What's green about ....
Our business’s strong commitment to sustainability is evident in our communication especially via the informative website. Forrest Hills focus on using home made vegetables grown on site, local, organic and fair-trade products, as well as eco-cleaners and recycled paper products. A green resource centre is under construction with sustainable features including natural forms and materials such as use of their own stone and timber, straw bale insulation and lime render, as well as renewable energy technologies. A reed bed has been created (lined with their own clay) to treat waste on site.
