Blue Spruce Farm is well known for being the first dairy to participate in Central Vermont Public Service’s groundbreaking Cow Power™ program, which allows consumers to purchase renewable energy generated on dairy farms.
What if we start to think simple and do what our grandma taught us to do:
1.Take only what we need, eat healthy and not too much.
2.Retailers, food companies, and restaurant chains who have too much can give it to shelters, food pantries, and good programs such as Feeding America
3.When that’s not practical, this so-called food ‘waste’ can be turned into valuable nutrients for farming. What comes from the land goes back to the land. We can put those nutrients back to work, by mixing them with manure to create natural compost or fertilizer.
And now, with enhanced technologies, adding food ‘waste’/aka nutrients into an anaerobic digester on a dairy farm can not only create natural fertilizer but also clean, renewable energy to power homes.
