Our pastures are REALLY Green! On our windy back hill pasture we have a 15kw Proven wind turbine and on our new milking barn we have solar panels. For heat and hot water we burn only wood from the farm in five outdoor/indoor wood furnaces. We use this renewable energy to milk our cows and cool the milk!
We are proud to minimalize our carbon footprint and help pioneer the wind energy movement.
Carter and Stevens Farm has the highest elevation of acres of farm pastures in the state of Massachusetts. We maximize our land use by putting our cows on land that is too rocky or steep to be cultivated. Not only do our milking cows get to enjoy the fresh air and green grass, but we also raise our heifers in pastures as well. And of course, all our grass-fed beef cows are pasture-based.
