Earlier this year Upper Hurst Farm was awarded the prestigious Environmental Quality Mark, which demonstrates the company’s commitment to the environment and the local economy.
It is an award presented by the Peak District National Park Authority to companies and organisations that:
- Support the local economy
- Protect the global environment
- Enhance the local environment
- Invest in people and communities
- Celebrate what’s special about the Peak District National Park
When people buy a product or use a service provided by a company that has been awarded the EQM, they can be confident that they will be helping to look after the Peak District environment, as well as local people and communities.
Commenting on the award Sue Green, the founder and owner of Upper Hurst Farm said: “At the very outset we wanted to create a business that would support and enhance the Peak District and local environment.
“We installed a biomass boiler and have recently installed 100 solar panels, so our impact on the environment has been significantly reduced. am very proud that we have achieved this award and look forward to continuing to do what we can for the environment.”
