Hard Earned Acres is an innovative 630-cow dairy farm owned by is Bob and Barb Keefer. The farm has two milking parlors (the small parlor is devoted to only treated and fresh cows) and an anaerobic digester. The digester can hold 700,000 gallons of manure and collects methane gas which is converted to electricity. This electricity powers the entire farm, the house, and also generates surplus power that is sold back to the electric company. The waste that goes through the digester that gets spread onto the fields is virtually odor free after this process. You won't want to miss out on this farm tour!
