One of the barns in the garden has 6.8kW solar photoelectric panels, and some of the electricity is stored in a 6kWh battery, making the home largely self-sufficient for electricity, and providing a backup during power cuts.
In the grounds is a large allotment providing vegetables all the year round; and orchard; a willow stand to grow firewood; a Christmas tree plantation; a copse of mixed trees which they planted 36 years ago and is now mature; hedges have been replanted with an Ashridge conservation mix of indigenous trees; and Rosemary and Henry keep chickens, lambs and pigs along organic lines, in fields attached to the garden and nearby (the meat is sometimes available for sale).
