Cottage Farms, an Apple & Pear packing facility are based in Horsmonden Kent. They send 2,500,000 boxes of Apples & Pears every year to their supermarket customer. That’s 180 million Apples and Pears or 26,000 tonnes. At their busiest period Cottage Farms gently handle 55,000 apples per hour for their growers. They check them inside and out, to ensure they reach their customer in tip top condition.
Managing Director Chris Browning shares a inspiring passion to increase on site generation to minimise the impact of importing electricity from the grid. In May 2019 Cottage Farms completed their cold store extension that provides them with circa 1500 additional pallets spaces, arranged on a high bay mobile racking system. Integral to the extension was utilising the roof space to generate additional power to complete the initial Solar PV install.
