About Boythorpe

Boythorpe is a name synonymous with Agricultural innovation, ever since the 1960s when it started manufacturing green 'Boythorpe Cropstores' tower silos.

Innovation continued throughout the 70s and 80s with the 'Yorkshire Wold Mushrooms' venture that at one time was one of the largest employers in our area, with more than 200 staff picking and packing mushrooms on a commercial scale every day of the week.

In the early 90s we had the UK's first 'digital' sheep flock - where our 400 flock of Suffolk Cross ewes were all micro-chipped and had unique identities that allowed us to track lambing percentages and medication - allowing us to be 'more than' fully compliant with record keeping legislation.

Also around that time we had a 10,000 tonne commercial grain store and dried and stored grain and rapeseed for hundreds of farmers in the surrounding area.

Our wind turbines are not only helping the environment, but also helping farmers generate extra income during tough times, including the knock-on effects of Brexit, global pandemics and climate change. .

Our Capabilities and Experience

Our engineering staff have more than 35 years of combined experience in the renewable energy sectors, and have collectively been involved in thousands of wind turbine projects around the United Kingdom.

During the past decade alone we have worked on both wind and biomass projects, involving:

  • project development
  • land owner interface and land leases
  • joint ventures
  • wind studies, including installation of meteorological towers
  • project engineering and design
  • equipment procurement and installation
  • construction and start-up/commissioning
  • operation and maintenance

We employ an experienced team of electrical and engineering staff.  Our project team is designed to provide full-service, “turnkey” capabilities — from early project development and siting, to wind turbine construction and commissioning, to operation and maintenance after start-up — focused upon performance and results.

Based upon our proven track record, we are committed to providing superior services and projects.
