Bwlch Y Groes

Summary of the Bwlch Y Groes Peatland Restoration Project

The Roberts family have been farming at Pennant Farm in Wales for several generations and focus predominantly on beef and sheep farming. In 2020, they started to explore the restoration of one of their peatlands, a 66-hectare degraded blanket bog in Bwlch Y Groes, using a mixture of carbon finance and public funding from the Welsh government. They sold 2,335 carbon units via the IUCN UK Peatland Code to a brewery company in Cheltenham, making this first carbon-funded peatland restoration project in Wales.
