Brothers Randy and Brian Jordan are 5th generation farmers in Rutland, Massachusetts. Jordan Dairy Farms is home to 800 head of Holsteins and one Big Bertha, and became the first farm in Massachusetts to produce energy using anaerobic digestion, turning the organic matter in their cow manure into power. Each day, they produce enough clean energy to offset 5,500 pounds of CO2 emissions. There are now five farms that use anaerobic digestion to produce energy in the state.
