Climate change is front and center on policymakers’ agendas both with the Biden Administration and the 117th Congress. As highlighted in our Stewards of the Land series, Northeast farm, forest products and fishing businesses are using a variety of new and existing strategies to reduce their carbon footprint and protect the environment.
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.
Today begins a four-part series highlighting Northeast agricultural producers who have implemented various practices to benefit the environment. We’ll kick off the series at Russell Orchards Farm Store and Winery, a 120-acre fruit and vegetable farm in Ipswich, Massachusetts.
