• Farm Zero C

    A farming for Sustainable Future

    In a world first project for agriculture, Carbery, BiOrbic and our partners are creating a climate-neutral dairy farm by undertaking an interdisciplinary programme of work, targeting several areas:

    Soil and Grassland Management

    Capturing carbon within the soil by planting multi-species swards. This allows reduction of fertiliser and produces more resilient grass.

    Animal Diet and Breeding

    Trialling different types of diet that change animal digestion, reducing the amount of methane emitted by cows.


    Maintaining and improving biodiversity on the farm and leveraging the natural ecosystem to reduce the reliance on pesticides and fertiliser.

    Life-cycle Analysis

    Analysing the total environmental inputs and outputs on the farm to understand overall carbon emissions and where savings can be made.

    Renewable Energy

    Sourcing renewable energy where possible to reduce the farm’s reliance on carbon-emitting fossil fuels.

    About Farm Zero C

    Farm Zero C is a collaboration between BiOrbic, Carbery and others to address the challenge of carbon neutral farming.

    The project takes a holistic approach, combining a range of technologies and practices to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and increase the productivity and resilience of the farm.
