From Waste to Watts – Noblehurst Farms, Linwood, NY

In this episode, we introduce you to Chris Noble of Noblehurst Farms in Linwood, New York. Chris is a dad, a dairy farmer and a steward of the environment. He is the seventh generation to farm at Noblehurst. Chris explains how the farm’s anaerobic digester takes manure and combines it with food waste from grocery stores and universities to create energy.

This ‘waste to watts’ technology was born out of Noble’s desire to farm with the greatest level of care for the environment. Sustainable farming initiatives like this position Noblehurst Farms as a leader in the dairy industry. This cutting-edge way of farming has also created diverse businesses that help support their dairy operations.
