Meet the farm team
We are a proud farming family who believe that moving with the times is great for business. Our 2,000 acre farm is situated in the beautiful countryside of South East Cornwall. Alongside our main arable rotations, we have two wind turbines and several acres of solar panels, providing renewable energy to the surrounding area.
We are actively looking for further farming opportunities in the South West, contact Will on 07770 857 177 to discuss.
At WH Bond, we are committed to operating our business in an environmentally friendly manner. We strive to continuously improve our practices and implement sustainable solutions wherever possible. Some of the ways we work towards increasing sustainability at WH Bond consist of:
Reduced Tillage One of the ways we reduce our environmental impact is by practicing reduced tillage. This refers to a system of growing crops without disturbing the soil as much as traditional methods. This helps in preserving the natural structure and composition of the soil, which is essential for maintaining healthy and productive farmland. By implementing reduced tillage practices, we are able to reduce our carbon footprint.
We have been using chopped straw for over 8 years now and it has so many different uses such as, it can act as a soil conditioner, garden beds, can help prevent soil from freezing, and can be used for animal bedding which is also what we do with sawdust from Bond Timber.
We also make use of broiler manure as a natural fertilizer for our crops. This not only eliminates the need for harmful chemical fertilizers but also reduces waste.
Renewable Energy Sources
At WH Bond, we are proud to have installed solar panels and wind turbines on our premises. These renewable energy sources help in reducing our reliance on non-renewable energy and reduce emissions.
We believe in supporting our local community and economy. That’s why we hire local labour whenever possible. By reducing the need for transportation, we are able to reduce our carbon footprint and support our community members.
Waste Reduction and Recycling
At WH Bond, we have implemented various waste reduction and recycling practices. For instance, all the sawdust from Bond Timber is used as animal bedding, eliminating the need for disposal. Additionally, waste wood is sent for recycling instead of being discarded. Furthermore, we have switched to liquid fertilizer to reduce plastic waste.
Green Waste Composting
Since 2000, we have been using green waste composting as a way to manage our waste. Through this process, we are able to convert organic waste into nutrient-rich compost that is used on our farmland.
WH Bond & Trerule Farm i-Farm
As agricultural innovators, WH Bond are extremely proud to have been chosen to be the Agrii’s South West i-Farm a few times now. The i-Farm initiative is a network of sites across the UK, hosted by Agrii clients, where the farming community can view demonstrations of new agronomic innovations and discuss how they can be put into practice on the farm. Every i-Farm will highlight how these innovations can be adopted into real farming practice, through an engaging events programme to keep farmers and agronomists abreast of the latest varieties, management systems and technologies to aid productivity and profitability.
