Fostering awareness of resource input on a traditional beef and sheep farm

The farm has seen reductions in emissions while maintaining high output over the three years of the auditing process. At the same time, they have been made aware of their inputs, and the carbon audits highlighted the areas to improve the business that otherwise would not have been obvious.
