The owners of the Pink Pig Farm have created a hugely popular business attracting over 120,000 visitors each year to the Farm shop, Restaurant and Park.
The park is visited by over 1,000 school children who come to spend time with the animals, play in the outside recreation areas or spend time in the indoor play barns.
They approached RDC to help reduce the running cost of a new play area, with so much farmland available it made sense for a ground source heat pump to be installed using horizontal ground loops in trenches. RDC installed a 37kW ground source heat pump to provide heating through an underfloor system for the kids playbarn, as well as providing hot water to the kitchens and bathrooms. The system has been confirmed as eligible for the non-domestic RHI and payments have started which will continue for the next 20 years.
