Pig muck to power farm

We’ve sometimes considered using pig muck to generate electricity so it was interesting to read about a Morpeth pig producer installing an anaerobic digester and turbine to power their farm.

Pigs at a farm in Northumberland will soon be heating their own homes from electricity made from their waste.

Slurry at Cockle Park Farm near Morpeth is being put through a machine called an anaerobic digester which converts it into green energy.
