Low Carbon Farming

The Oasthouse team completed a £120m fundraise in September 2019 to construct two of the country’s largest greenhouses, heated by the largest heat pumps ever deployed in the UK, utilising waste heat from water treatment facilities.

The £120m investment is from major UK pension funds, managed by Greencoat Capital. The two locations will create 360 permanent new jobs in Norfolk and Suffolk and the 29 hectares of greenhouses will be capable of producing 12% of the UK’s tomatoes with a 75% reduction in carbon footprint.
