Cow Power: From Waste to Watts

Dairy Month Lecture Series

Presenter: Denise Barstow, Marketing and Education Manager at Barstow’s Longview Farm.

Cow manure and food waste come together in the Barstow’s Longview Farm Anaerobic Digester to create enough green electricity for 1,400 Massachusetts homes. Learn about this zero waste, closed loop system on your neighborhood dairy farm.

Free walking digester tour begins at Barstow’s Dairy Store and Bakery and will take approximately 30 minutes. Tour is on a first come first serve basis.
