This week, Farmer Bret from Reinford Farms in Mifflintown, PA, gives us a tour of his farm.
We learn about how his cows are milked on a carousel and take a peek in the calf barn. Spoiler alert - The calves sleep on heated floors! How cool!
Learn how technology is important at Reinford Farms. Farmer Bret uses an anaerobic digester (Methane Digester) to capture methane from cow manure and food waste and turn it into renewable energy all day, every day.
