In our final installment of Stewards of the Land, we travel to Bordentown, N.J., to Sunset Farmstead — a sustainable nursery operation focused on growing native plants for pollinators and effective soil management.
Today our Stewards of the Land series takes us to a Western New York dairy farm. Noblehurst Farms is a 1,850-cow dairy with 3,000 crop acres, and their most recent iteration in a long history of environmental stewardship was the installation of an anaerobic digester.
As we celebrate Earth Day, we at Farm Credit East wanted to highlight Northeast producers who have implemented environmentally friendly practices in their operations. We believe few are more committed to the health of our land, air and water than those who work farms, forests and waterways every day — and we want to share their stories!
As Earth Day draws near, we reflect on the sustainability of the agricultural industry and the efforts producers make every day to be stewards of the land and reduce their impact on the earth’s resources. Here are a few ways Northeast producers are reducing, reusing and recycling.
