Principles of sustainability have inspired the Minnes Farm’s low impact development strategies.
Sustainable design increases the efficiency with which houses and homesites use and harvest energy, water, and materials. Through consideration of design, construction, operation, maintenance, and waste management, our development team looks forward to working with clients to make their home a model of responsible stewardship.
“Green Building” is the act of designing places and processes to reduce environmental impacts while maintaining a quality of life and honouring the natural health, beauty, and characteristics of the land.
Protecting the existing natural characteristics of the property is a major goal for Minnes Farm. The placement of farm operations, roads and homesites will be based on an appreciation and understanding of the property and our desire to minimize visual impacts to the landscape. Our farm will remain an earthy and useful addition to the Wakefield community – a model of sustainable practices.
