Plants Over Pills Colorado (P.O.P. Colorado) sees a drop in CBD production costs as an opportunity to make hemp products accessible to lower-income customers.

More and more people are using CBD as a medicine, and it’s too expensive for most people to use every day. You shouldn’t be locked out of something that really works because of your income.”

— Matt Gibson

FORT COLLINS, COLORADO, USA, June 11, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Following CBD’s meteoric rise in popularity, an increase in hemp production has flooded supply lines and driven down the cost of raw materials. Many companies have neglected to pass those savings on to consumers, opting instead to allow profit margins to grow in the apparent hope that consumers would not notice.

Cat and Matt Gibson, who co-founded Fort Collins-based Plants Over Pills Colorado (P.O.P. Colorado), have gone the opposite direction with their company’s pricing, treating the drop in production costs as an opportunity to make their hemp products more accessible to customers with lower incomes.

“More and more people are using CBD as a medicine, and it’s too expensive for most people to use every day,” Matt Gibson said. “You shouldn’t be locked out of something that really works because of your income.”

While the U.S. Food and Drug Administration prohibits hemp companies from making specific claims regarding the medical efficacy of CBD or other cannabinoids, countless consumers nationwide have come to rely on cannabinoids for relief from pain, anxiety, sleeplessness and other ailments. Many prescription medications designed to treat those same conditions carry the potential for addiction or death.

It was the Gibsons’ first-hand experience with prescription painkillers that drove them to found their company.

“Catherine’s dad died of a doctor-prescribed pain medication overdose—opiates. And we’ve seen several of our friends die from opiate overdose. We wish those people had an opportunity to use these hemp cannabinoid products instead of opiates. We feel like they would still be here today,” Matt Gibson said.

They knew their effort would be for naught if their products weren’t strong enough to be effective. Though low-cost CBD and hemp products are widely accessible, most contain vanishingly small concentrations of cannabinoids, and others contain isolates prone to damage by harsh or questionable extraction techniques.

Working with botanists, laboratory specialists and other experts in the cannabis industry, the Gibsons developed high-strength CBD, CBG and CBN products that are pure and undamaged.

Matt Gibson said the process was a challenge from the start because large, profit-driven hemp extract suppliers have helped fuel the idea that the hemp industry is a massive cash grab.

“Most people didn’t have the time to talk to us at the level that we could afford to come in at,” he said. “They only wanted to work with big whales spending millions of dollars from the very start. So we talked to a couple of guys that we were introduced to by a friend—kind of hippie guys—and they gave us smaller amounts that would allow us to enter the industry on a small budget. They didn’t gouge us and they taught us what high quality hemp oil actually looks like. Unfortunately, that's not what a lot of brands are selling.”

It was the desire to learn every part of the hemp production process that led the Gibsons to start growing their own hemp in 2020, and to purchase their own hemp oil extractor. With full vertical control over their products, which they formulate, bottle and label, they would be better equipped to control both quality and pricing.

While they do have bigger aspirations for P.O.P. Colorado, right now their focus is on local expansion. As the epicenter of hemp science and production, Northern Colorado seems to them to be the ideal place to gain a foothold.

"I think if we can win over the educated, hemp-savvy customers of Northern Colorado, then we can do it anyplace,” Matt Gibson said. “We have one of the most educated markets because we’ve been at the forefront of cannabis production as a state, and this is an agricultural area of Colorado. If we can prove that our products’ quality and price is the best here, then we’ll be able to do that anywhere.”

Announcing the start-up winners at Future Food Asia 2021 Award

Singapore-based Allozymes and Hong Kong-based Senior Deli were announced as co-winners at Future Food Asia 2021 and will receive US$ 100,000 each.

Announcing the co-winners of the FFA2021, the winner of the Cargill Prize for Health through Nutrition, and the Thai Wah Circular Bio-Economy Prize

SINGAPORE, June 11, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ —
– Singapore-based Allozymes and Hong Kong-based Senior Deli were announced as co-winners at Future Food Asia 2021 and will receive US$ 100,000 each.
– Singapore-based A.I. food fingerprinting technology start-up ProfilePrint was awarded the Cargill Prize for Health Through Nutrition.
– Korea-based food upcycling start-up REharvest and US & China-based waste-to-packaging start-up Mi Terro were both awarded the Thai Wah Circular Bio-Economy Prize.

The Future Food Asia (FFA) conference was hosted from June 7-11, convening executives from leading corporations, emerging entrepreneurs, key investors, sector experts and many other agrifood industry stakeholders. The conference this year carried the theme of ‘Agrifoodtech 2.0’, a celebratory sign as innovation in this space reaches a new stage of maturity. It was thus natural to join forces with industry leaders to award 5 outstanding startups. The awards competition saw a 24% increase in number of applicants this year, coming from 17 different countries. The 10 shortlisted start-up finalists pitched their innovations to a live global audience of over 550 industry stakeholders.

Cargill Prize for Health Through Nutrition awarded to ProfilePrint (Singapore)
With a wealth of innovations addressing critical aspects of how our food is produced, and notably new alternative protein propositions, more than ever nutrition needs to remain a compass to navigate strategic as well as personal decisions. Therefore, in line with its commitment to nourishing the world in a safe, sustainable and responsible way, FFA 2021 Title Partner Cargill has decided to award ProfilePrint its Prize for Health Through Nutrition. The prize will provide ProfilePrint the opportunity to deploy their patented A.I. food fingerprinting technology in one of Cargill’s key business units. The start-up will also get access to Cargill’s in-house experts who will help ProfilePrint on their journey of expansion into new products and markets.

ProfilePrint synthesizes complex sensory data into a single digital fingerprint which predicts the quality profile of a food sample within seconds. It combines metabolomics, artificial intelligence and sensor technologies and has commercialized the solution via a cloud-based platform with a portable analyser. The company is addressing the challenge of flavor assessment to help improve consistency across the food supply chain as it remains inaccurate, inefficient and costly. “We were impressed by all the innovative solutions being built by the start-ups we interacted with as part of the competition. It is great to see so many dedicated entrepreneurs bringing to market solutions that help improve the overall wellbeing of our society. ProfilePrint’s technology enables us to optimize the nutritional value of our portfolio of ingredients without compromising on taste and quality. Both these metrics are key in ensuring consumer and customer acceptance. Cargill is keen to leverage ProfilePrint to take the connection between nutrition and health to the next level,” said Marcel Smits, Chairman of Cargill Asia Pacific and Global Head of Corporate Strategy.

Thai Wah Circular Bio-Economy Prize awarded to REharvest (South Korea) and Mi Terro (US and China)
Thai Wah recognizes that the mission of ensuring our planet thrives for future generations can only be accomplished by bringing together like-minded partners to build a better future. Thai Wah decided to award two start-ups REharvest and Mi Terro the Circular Bio-Economy Prize. REharvest transforms by-products from beer and shikhye (traditional Korean drink) production into flour and other products with higher nutritional profile. Mi Terro repurposes plant-based agricultural waste to manufacture single-use plastic-alternative packaging materials.

REharvest and Mi Terro will receive full support for their application development at Thai Wah’s innovation lab as well as pilot trial implementation within the Thai Wah global ecosystem. They will also get assistance in executing their go-to-market strategy upon product validation. The prize demonstrates Thai Wah’s commitment and passion to create useful and high value future bioproducts from biomaterials with positive impact for Our Consumers, Our People, and Our Planet.

“We are really excited and honored, together with our partners Future Food Asia, to award this inaugural prize to REharvest and Mi Terro. During the course of the selection process we managed to spend time with these entrepreneurs and are inspired by their creativity, innovation, and dedication. Agriculture and food innovation is a continuous journey and we are thrilled to partner them in their next lap going forward,” said Ho Ren Hua, CEO of Thai Wah Public Company Limited.

Allozymes (Singapore) and Senior Deli (Hong Kong SAR, China) were announced as co-winners of the Future Food Asia Award
As for the selection of the winner for the Future Food Asia Award, the assessment was carried out by the jury made up of: Dr. Ralph Graichen, Senior Director of Food & Consumer Cluster at Agency for Science, Technology and Research’s (A*STAR) Biomedical Research Council; Xiuling Guo, Managing Director, Cargill Global Edible Oil Solutions, Asia; Francesca Kleemans, Managing Director, Cargill Cocoa & Chocolate, Asia; and Isabelle Decitre, Founder and CEO of ID Capital.

With a focus on disruptive solutions to overcome the hurdles on the path to a more sustainable food future in Asia Pacific, the jury named Allozymes and Senior Deli as co-winners of the 2021 Future Food Asia Award. Allozymes applies its proprietary microfluidics technology to develop custom-designed enzymes for cleaner and sustainable manufacturing of complex natural products. Senior Deli has developed proprietary food engineering technologies to produce leading products including thickener, food softener, food gellant & pre-packed soft meals for the elderly and those who have dysphagia.

Allozymes and Senior Deli will receive US$100,000 each as part of the Future Food Asia Award. This was the first instance of an announcement of co-winners at Future Food Asia, a testament to the quality of the start-up finalists and overall maturity of the agrifoodtech sector.

“The Allozymes team is thrilled to be a joint-winner of the Future Food Asia Award and for our enzyme engineering platform to be recognised as a powerful technology for delivering sustainably produced natural ingredients at scale,” said Peyman Salehian, PhD, CEO of Allozymes.

"The Senior Deli team is elated to be a joint-winner of Future Food Asia 2021 Award. We will continue in our endeavour of developing the best products for the elderly and those in need, at an affordable price for carers and institutions,” said Raymond Chau co-founder & CEO of Senior Deli.

“This exceptional cohort is a tribute to entrepreneurial ingenuity. My jury fellows and I chose to reward two very different startups, a sign that agrifoodtech has matured into a rich and diverse sector. Allozymes has developed a powerful enabling technology platform that can serve a range of industries, evidencing the convergence between foodtech and other fields of science. It’s a real booster for the entire synthetic biology sector and a significant contribution to a more circular economy. Senior Deli is here to remind us that healthy ageing starts with healthy eating, which a growing part of the elderly population struggles with. Thanks to their proprietary suite of technologies combined with impeccable execution skills they are primed to make a difference in that space. We are delighted to welcome both teams to the FFA family,” said Isabelle Decitre, Founder and CEO of ID Capital.

Future Food Asia 2021 has been made possible by the continued support from our partners: Cargill, one of the world’s largest agricultural commodity traders and food processors; Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR), Singapore’s lead public research agency; Thai Wah, the regional leader in plant based food products, a pioneer in Thailand for starch, vermicelli and noodles; Dole Sunshine Company, one of the world's largest producers and marketers of high-quality packaged and fresh fruit; HaoShi Foundation, a non-profit organization, which focus on fostering agrifood start-ups growth through innovative approaches with international perspective; Bühler Group, the leading global technology supplier to the food processing industry; and the Singapore Economic Development Board (EDB), the lead government agency responsible for strategies that enhance Singapore’s position as a global centre for business, innovation and talent.

California Celebrates Men’s Health in June

Communities Across the Globe Honor Men’s Health Month

CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, June 11, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The state of California, as well as the cities of Beverly Hills, Coachella, Cupertino, and Santa Cruz have issued proclamations celebrating men’s health and fatherhood in June, helping educate men, boys, and their families about disease prevention, timely screenings, healthy lifestyles, and positive family relationships.

The proclamations can be found here.

The importance of this effort was also highlighted by a statement from the White House.

Raising awareness of the need for men and boys to live healthy lifestyles is critical to their wellbeing. The life expectancy for men is five years less than women, and men also have higher rates of death from cancer, diabetes, and heart disease. Moreover, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) reports women are 100% more likely to visit their doctor for annual exams and preventative services than men.

Report cards on the status of male health in each state can be found at the State of Men's Health website (https://www.menshealthnetwork.org/stateofmenshealth/). Proclamations from cities and states be found at www.MensHealthMonth.com

“It is an honor to recognize June as Men’s Health Month to raise awareness of the importance of a healthy lifestyle and regular medical evaluation so that our dads, sons, brothers and uncles can lead happy, productive lives with their families and loved ones,” Santa Cruz mayor Donna Meyers said. “Men are often overlooked in health needs and it is important that we let our loved ones know we care about their health and support them in exploring ways to keep themselves happy and in good health. Santa Cruz is a wonderful town for everyone to enjoy outdoor exercise, stress reduction, and a healthy diet.”

"In our multi-faceted and ongoing efforts to promote everyone's health and quality of life, I appreciate the decades-long effort recognizing Men's Health Month, which was started in the 1990's on the level of our federal government,” Cupertino Mayor Darcy Paul said. “We continue with these good efforts to inter-connect everyone in a healthy tapestry."

“It’s simple, health men (physical, mental, spiritual) are integral to our success as a society,” Coachella Mayor Steven Hernandez said. “Conversely, unhealthy men, lead to negative outcomes in society (broken homes, crime, increased healthcare). We are proud to support Men’s Health Month.”

“We applaud officials in their states for helping raise awareness of the health issues facing men and their families by recognizing this year’s men’s health awareness period,” said Ana Fadich Tomsic, MPH, CHES, Vice President, Men’s Health Network. “Communities around the globe continue to promote the health and well-being of men and boys throughout the month of June. We hope this year’s awareness period will help men and their families be more mindful of their health starting with a doctor’s appointment.”

Across the country, hundreds of health care professionals, private corporations, faith-based organizations, community groups, and other interested organizations help plan activities and events that focus on men’s health during June, and throughout the year. On June 18, MHN encourages participation in using the #ShowUsYourBlue hashtag on social media where participants raised awareness about men’s health issues by Wearing BLUE.

For ideas and free resources in both English and Spanish, visit www.MensHealthMonth.org

Men’s Health Month grew out of National Men’s Health Week, which was enacted by Congress. The legislation was sponsored by Senator Bob Dole and Congressman Bill Richardson and was signed into law by President Bill Clinton on May 31, 1994.

Men’s Health Month and Men’s Health Week are organized by Men's Health Network MHN), an international non-profit organization whose mission is to reach men, boys, and their families where they live, work, play, and pray with health prevention messages and tools, screening programs, educational materials, advocacy opportunities, and patient navigation.

THE 10 DAY FLORAL EXHIBITION FIRST HITS VANCOUVER STREETS THIS WEEK SHOWCASING OVER 50 POP-UP INSTALLATIONS DESIGNED BY TOP LOCAL FLORISTS

The FloraGUPPY is honoured to be in Fleurs de Villes ROSÉ. Forists and their customers are concerned about the environment. Now they have an environmentally friendly alternative to floral foam.”

— James Wong, FloraGUPPY Inventor

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA, June 10, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — FloraGUPPY – the first eco-friendly alternative to floral foam in 65 years joins the Canadian premiere of Fleurs de Villes ROSÉ, a 10-day floral event beginning June 11 in downtown Vancouver featuring beautiful floral art displays by top local florists.

In support of breast cancer research and hosted by Vancouver business associations, the floral trail will feature over 50 pop-up installations in the heart of the city, created by some of Vancouver’s distinguished florists.

Fleurs de Villes ROSÉ will feature floral couture mannequins, giant floral hearts, flower bombed antique cars, phone booths bursting with blossoms, and elegant sculptures. Also featured will be the revolutionary replacement for green floral foam – the FloraGUPPY.

The FloraGUPPY (actually a basketful of them) was used in one of Britain’s top invitation floral competitions at Covent Garden which was judged by royalty. Now the FloraGUPPY will appear on the streets of Vancouver in a floral display at the Bentall Centre. It’s used by leading florists on four continents and praised by top floral magazines in the UK, USA, Austria and Canada as an eco-friendly replacement for floral foam. Earlier this year the FloraGUPPY was featured during a virtual flower training event – FLEURVANA Spring 2021 – involving as many as 1,000 American florists and growers.

Also this year, the UK’s Royal Horticultural Society – the most influential floral organization in the world – banned green floral foam at all of its flower shows including the world’s top show – the Chelsea Flower Show.

FloraGUPPY inventor, James Wong, says, “The FloraGUPPY is honoured to be included in Fleurs de Villes ROSÉ. We know florists, their customers and the public are concerned about the environment so we’re happy to offer them an environmentally friendly alternative to green floral foam.”

The game-changing FloraGUPPY looks like a ball with 58 holes of varying sizes and comes in two interlocking halves and is reusable, recyclable and versatile and can be molded in warm water and used for fresh and faux flowers.

As part of Fleurs de Villes ROSÉ, on Sunday June 13, there will be market stalls where shoppers can purchase flowers or a FloraGUPPY.

KONAK, IZMIR, TURKEY, June 10, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Extra virgin olive oil is an essential food in our daily Mediterranean diet with its delicious taste, high value and health benefits. Turkey is one of the most prominent producers of extra virgin olive oil in the world and certainly one of the oldest countries to cultivate olives.

Last week, we have visited Artem Oliva’s production facility which is the leading olive oil manufacturer in Turkey to understand how to recognize a quality and taste of an olive oil. Artem Oliva’s olive oil tasting experts have explained the important points that you should know about an olive oil and have given very valuable tips to understand characteristics of olive oil with their long and strong experience which is starting from the field to the production and bottling of olive oil. This is also kind of evidence indicates us Artem Oliva’s journey to become the best olive oil brand in the world.

The rest of the article has been quoted from Artem Oliva’s experts during our interview:

In the recent few years, green color olive oil which is called early harvest extra virgin olive oil has been considered a gourmet or delicatessen product in the superior range. The oil is usually more expensive since its production is more expensive than a more mature olive oil.
For example, to obtain a liter of extra virgin olive oil you usually need about 5 kg of olives, to obtain a liter of early harvest extra virgin oil you usually need about 10 to 12 kg of olives.

Its production is made from young or early harvest olives, (hence its name) that are harvested at the time of color change which refers to a ripening cycle of the olive. Obviously, the olive yield is lower at this stage, hovering between 7 and 15 percent, depending on the variety, while in later stages of maturation it is between 20 and 30 percent.

After the summer, the olives begin their ripening stage to be harvested between autumn and winter. The normal thing is to do it between the months of October to December, although it varies according to the harvest (area, climate, rains). By making this direct harvesting of the olive trees in this stage of change from green to purple, a high quality product is achieved. The reason is that the optimum degree of maturity that is achieved with this variety of oil is ideal since it keeps the organoleptic properties of the oil intact.

In this way, we ensure that polyphenols are preserved at their highest levels. Polyphenols are one of the components that make extra virgin olive oil or EVOO so beneficial for our health. That is why this stage is so important to obtain green color olive oil. Not only because of the color of the olive, but because the maturity of the fruit and its treatment until the oil is extracted determines the quality of the oil.

Finally, it should be noted that early harvest olives are different both in taste and appearance from the ripe ones and they tend to have a more intense spicy and bitter touch than in more mature olives.

Characteristics of early harvest extra virgin olive oil: how to recognize it?

When it comes to recognizing an olive oil, we must speak from several points of view:
1. The view.
2. The smell.
3. The palate or taste.

Precisely, professional tasters follow these steps to be able to enjoy the full flavor of this variety of oil. To help you discover the taste and smell of this oil, we are going to guide you with a green olive oil tasting.

Olive oil tastings

The early harvest olives allow the obtaining of a superior quality product that gives an oil with different characteristics from that of ripe olives.
It is a special oil with an intense flavor and a perfect balance between bitter and sweet that you need to follow a few steps to carry out its tasting correctly.
Depending on the variety of green olives that we consume, we can find different olfactory and palate characteristics. In the case of Artem Oliva, we can discover its fruity touch with aromas of freshly cut grass, tomato or even banana peel.

Step 1, view:

We have to look at the color of the oil. However, we must not be fooled by the view or the green. To do this, a recommendation is to use a glass of a different color and not transparent.
Professional tasters often use blue glasses to taste the oil and thus not get carried away by its color before putting it in the mouth.
In this way, we prevent the oil from entering our eyes and influencing the tasting. In conclusion, it must be clear that the fact that an oil has a green color is not indicative of quality, so the tasting is mainly based on smell and taste.

Step 2, hands:
In this second step we must heat the glass or container that contains the olive oil with our hands.
What we want to achieve with this is that it reaches a temperature of about 27º centigrade to spread all its aromas through the glass. For this reason, we must cover the glass to capture all the olfactory nuances.
Finally, it is advisable to move the glass in circles gently and tilt it to impregnate its entire surface and that the aromas inside the glass are well concentrated.

Step 3, nose:

We reached the olfactory stage. Here the real tasting begins.
For this, it is recommended to do short repetitions to distinguish all the nuances and not saturate ourselves with the main aromas and to be able to capture the rest of the aromas that are also fundamental.
The first repetition is usually a contact, in the following shots we will appreciate smells such as herbs and aromas of fresh fruits such as apple or banana.
The more repetitions we do, the more nuances we will distinguish.

Step 4, palate or taste:

Four or the mouth is the final phase. Our palate becomes the judge and analyzes the taste of this liquid.
It is advisable to distribute the oil throughout the mouth, taking the oil to each of its areas. In the same way as in the previous stage, the first drink is a contact. Therefore, we will look for taste sensations and then focus on aspects of the oil, such as bitterness, sweetness or itching that it has.
It is important at this stage to take air intakes, in which the smell provides greater help to capture these nuances, increasing its sensation in the mouth. So, it is advisable to breathe several times in the same intake and take small sips.
Here we will determine the type of oil it is, its fruity, quality and characteristics, for example: intensity of spiciness or bitterness.

Step 5, packaging:

Although this stage does not fall within a professional tasting, many consumers attach importance to bottling as it generates confidence in buyers.
Artem Oliva is always trying to add value on olive oil by its appearance. On the contrary, for export markets, translucent or opaque glass bottles are usually used to protect oil from deterioration caused by light and to preserve the quality of EVOO for as long as possible.
Ultimately, whether in a transparent or translucent container, the best preservation of the oil would be a cool, dry and dark place to protect our oil from deterioration caused by light and to preserve the quality of EVOO for as long as possible.

Pairing, tips and uses

Artem Oliva Early Harvest Extra Virgin Olive Oil is perfect to consume directly. Thanks to its intensity and flavor, it helps to enhance the flavor of sausages such as hams, cured meats and accompany cheeses, salads and desserts.
It is perfect to accompany our day to day when we use dishes with sauces and emulsions. It is also valid for boiled vegetables, fish and pasta.

With these tips we finish this olive oil tasting guide. We hope you take advantage of this guide, you liked it and you become professional tasters.

Kann O&M £250,000 Investment Plan For Solar Farm Panel Cleaning

Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs Minister Edwin Poots with David Woodend and Samuel Knox

Kann O&M plans a three-year £250,000 investment beginning with the purchase of the leading solar panel cleaning system on the market today.

BELFAST, COUNTY ANTRIM, NORTHERN IRELAND, June 10, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Kann O&M plans a three-year £250,000 investment after they received grant aid of £19,425 from the Department of Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs that was used to assist with the purchase of the leading solar panel cleaning system on the market today.

The Sunbrush system is used to wash large-scale solar farms to improve their performance, and it is the only one of its type across Ireland and Northern Ireland.

David Woodend of Broughshane company Kann O&M said that there was a need for the system as the number of solar farms across Northern Ireland was growing as the government and private sector strive to meet reduced carbon output goals.

“At present solar farm operators in NI have limited options when it comes to cleaning their sites and have to bring contractors from mainland UK or resort to manual cleaning which is a long, labour intensive process with variable results,” he explained.

“Dirty panels as a result of ineffective or no cleaning at all results in reduced electricity output from the farm.

“The Sunbrush system can clean up to 20,000 solar panels across a 30-acre site in a day.”

Samuel Knox of Kann O&M, said the team has long experience in solar technology, having been involved in the construction of several solar farms, as well as dealing with connecting to the NIE grid.

“Building and managing a solar farm is a big undertaking,” he added. “Both David and I are used to dealing with the challenges that are required and investing in the Sunbrush system is the next step.

“Ultimately the grant aid from the department will mean that we can continue Kann O&M growth. That includes plans for a £250,000 investment across the next three years, leading to six new jobs.”

Minister for Agriculture, Edwin Poots said: “Kann O&M Ltd received financial support totalling £19,425 under the NI Rural Development Programme. This investment services an industry which is making a positive contribution to our environment and the mechanised service will improve productivity and efficiency for both Kann O&M Ltd and the solar farms. I wish them every success for the future.”

Kann O&M provides services in the renewable energy sector, with David and Samuel’s experience in solar starting with work on the first large-scale solar farm in Northern Ireland in 2016. The company also provides land management services to the solar sector which aim to improve biodiversity and provide additional environmental benefits to the local area.

“While we are both electricians we are also both farmers and live in rural backgrounds,” said David.

“That means that we understand that while solar farms are a key part of the zero carbon future, we want them to have as little impact as possible, and even enhance the wildflower and native species growth.
