Kemble Farm hopes to take advantage of the upcoming renewable heat incentive, which will encourage companies not to waste energy in the form of heat.
Farm manager David Ball explained: "We run a large modern dairy that supplies cow slurry to a pioneering on-farm anaerobic digester producing renewable electricity to the national grid, and this process produces a lot of excess heat that would provide an exciting opportunity to develop an additional enterprise.
"One obvious idea would be to use our excess heat, the renewable electricity, the fertiliser value in our digestate and the water from our fresh water borehole to grow high-value crops all year round, which would command a premium associated with their green credentials."
The farm currently processes around 39,000 litres of slurry per day from its herd of 750 cows that is then mixed with three tonnes of maize and a tonne of glycerol before being put into the anaerobic digester to create green electricity for the national grid.
An area of around one hectare is available for a nursery grower to put up a series of polytunnels and take advantage of the farm's excess 230kW of heat energy.
