Apsley Farms are very lucky to have an exceptional team producing renewable energy. At the start of our project in 2011 we had one employee, and now have a team of over fifty full time staff involved in keeping our plant fed! We have eight members of staff who look after the running of the plant 24/7, they work twelve hour shifts, including nights and alternate weekends.

The farming operation flexes up to ten people to cover not only the harvesting and spreading of digestate on our farm but also other farms who we have contracts with. Our harvesting is made up of two forager drivers, six trailer drivers and a manager.

All electrical and programming is achieved in house by six highly skilled operatives who will often be faced with daily challenges in the running of the plant. Having an in-house team allows us to create code on site, fix bugs and identify faults more efficiently. We have also built our own web portal allowing better insights into time tracking, fuel monitoring, gps tracking, weighbridge data, health and safety and asset management.

The maintenance department are very busy as they go about being as proactive as possible, fixing or repairing and occasionally creating when they have time. With a new heated workshop encouraging a productive environment, and regularly updated confined spaces certificates they are ready for any task.

Haulage is undertaken using seven of the new gen Scania R450 tractor units. We have a variety of trailers including Knapen walking floors which are normally loaded using one of two Liebherr diggers in 7 minutes. 30m3 Vacuum tankers, CO2 tankers, a grain trailer and a Low loader With 13 Class 1 or C+E HGV drivers in the team and 7 of them with a full ADR ticket, the team are use to jumping between the jobs to fulfil the yearly swings in activity

The accounts team are well established, and have developed powerful systems enabling the company to easily monitor financial performance and price variances, from year to year, helping us to check invoices for errors as they occur.

The engineers have mastered the way we are able to maximise the capital available and deliver a great retention time in our digesters, whilst making sure each bug is happy and warm!

The mulch sales department have their own office enabling superb advice to be given on all gardening related questions. Sales pitches are legendary! “I can make you look like a gardening god in 20 minutes by using our mulch”! They manage a team of delivery drivers with their Iveco vans and trusty cranes, who hope to get a glowing review on Google with their name on it. All this whilst doing their best to deliver each bag to exactly where the customer wants it.
The business development oversee our operational Health and Safety Policy, ISO accreditation and present and future strategy.
