Biochar Group

This group of farmers are interested in looking at the effects of biochar on both soil and livestock health. Some of the group are biochar producers using the same kiln with different materials. Issues with commercial production companies, particularly due to the inherent variability of the raw material, mean that they all support small farm scale production rather than using a commercial product. They are looking to test their locally made biochar on their own farming systems.

This group is new and open to other interested farmers, please contact us for information on how to get involved.
