Sustainable gardening with peat-free mulch

Are you looking for a more environmentally friendly and sustainable way to garden?

Peat-free mulch from Apsley Farms is the sustainable choice that is better for the environment.

Are you looking for a more environmentally friendly and sustainable way to garden? Peat is a non-renewable resource that takes thousands of years to form. When peat is extracted from bogs, it releases methane, a greenhouse gas that is more potent than carbon dioxide. Peatlands also play an important role in carbon storage so their destruction contributes to climate change.

Apsley Farms’ peat-free mulch is 100% crop-derived and is a sustainable by-product of renewable energy production at the biogas plant facility on the farm.

Apsley Farms mulch is rich in NPK nutrients and is organically certified by the Soil Association. Mulch creates a favourable environment for beneficial soil microorganisms. These microorganisms help break down organic matter and improve nutrient cycling in the soil. They contribute to the overall health of the soil ecosystem, which in turn supports healthier plant growth and moisture retention.

Over time, organic mulches break down and decompose, contributing organic matter to the soil. This organic matter improves soil structure by enhancing its ability to hold moisture. It increases the soil’s water-holding capacity, allowing it to retain more water and making it available to plant roots.

About Apsley Farms

Sustainability and efficiency is at the heart of everything we do at Apsley Farms. We’ve adopted cutting edge technologies and turned low value crops into renewable energy. We focus on a circular economy by returning the nutrients in our digestate products back to the land as a fertiliser.
Our process of generating green gas and other important by-products ticks three important boxes: it displaces natural gas (fossil fuel) in the gas grid to heat people’s homes; it displaces CO2 made by the fertiliser industry, which is essential in the food industry; and it simultaneously generates natural fertiliser in the process!
