Not many universities have their own commercial farm on campus. But here at Harper Adams University, staff and students are able to learn ‘in the field’ at the Future Farm.
The Future Farm has been created to allow Harper Adams University to have unified strategic aims for it's research and teaching. With the amalgamation of the Farm, APAS, Crop and Environment Research Centre (CERC), and the Smart Dairy, the Future Farm now sees each of these units form one team.
We, as part of Harper Adams University, have set ourselves the aim of being net-zero for scope 1 and 2 carbon by 2030. A bold aim but one we feel is important and we want to share our story along the way!
In 2021 four Environmental Sustainability (ES) groups were formed to help reach this goal, click on them for more information:
