Occombe Farm is the base for the Torbay Coast & Countryside Trust’s wood chip supply business. Timber is brought to the farm from local woodlands, then it's dried, chipped and used to supply local organisations that have installed wood chip boilers.
Our customers include The Sharpham Trust on the River Dart, Cockington Court and Paignton Zoo’s Crocodile House!
Wood Chip is a low carbon sustainable fuel. The carbon emitted when the fuel is burnt is roughly equal to the amount the trees absorbed when growing so there is not a large net production of carbon.
