When Mike retired from dairy farming, he started making the famous Cornish Yarg cheese, which has a unique taste from being covered in nettles. In August 2010, he had 2kW of solar panels installed in a field, close to the farmhouse. Mike’s decision to install the system was economic, as electricity prices continue to rise. However, he is also considering installing a much larger array of panels, as he has also been approached by three developers to install in-field solar photovoltaic (PV) panels in two of his South facing fields (totalling 26 acres).
