The Farm Powered™ Organics to Energy Lifecycle

The Vanguard Renewables Farm Powered Organics to Energy Lifecycle solves organic waste disposal challenges and supports the American Farmer. Our scalable, closed-loop Farm Powered anaerobic digestion process converts the energy potential in farm and food waste into Renewable Electricity or Renewable Natural Gas. We are the premier farm-based anaerobic digestion plant owner/operator in the United States committed to Table to Farm renewable energy production. Food waste producers get a safe, clean, and certifiable food waste solution. Farm Powered anaerobic digestion sustains farms with a 15-20 percent bottom line increase. It eliminates greenhouse gas emissions and groundwater contamination from manure and provides low-cost energy, organic fertilizer, and free heat and hot water to the farm.

US Diary Sustainablity Award

American Biogas Council 2016 Agricultural Project of the Year awarded to Barstow’s Longview Farm, Vanguard Renewables, and Cabot Creamery Cooperative Farm Powered anaerobic digester partnership.

Farm Powered Anaerobic Digestion
is the Clean Energy Trifecta

It provides an innovation boost to the American farmer, a food waste disposal solution for American business, and affordable energy for American communities with an 85% reduction in greenhouse gases.

Food is a powerful energy source, yet in the United States, most of the excess food ends up in landfills with harmful consequences to the community. These landfills, coupled with agricultural waste, emit methane, a greenhouse gas that is more than 20 times worse for the environment than CO2.

Sustainability For Farmers

"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."

– David Barstow, Longview Farm

Feedstock Suppliers Benefit

“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.

– Cindy Collet, Store Manager,
Geissler’s Supermarket
