With a fluctuating dairy market, we needed a new approach to sustain our family and our farm. In 2013, we introduced an anaerobic digester to our farm to process farm and food waste into energy for the farm and for the surrounding community.”

Food Waste Diversion

“This is recycling on its most basic level. Taking food, breaking it down, sending it back to a farm, and turning it into energy so you can grow more food and send it out to the supermarkets. Its coming full circle.

Geissler’s Supermarket
