Manure Storage in Manchester

This Waste Storage and Transfer System provides 4.2 million gallons of storage in a concrete manure storage structure adjacent to the base farm. This allows the farm to transition from a daily spreading operation to now having adequate storage to time manure application during appropriate weather conditions during times of optimal nutrient uptake to meet crop needs. Through the completion of this project, this farm now has 6 months of storage capacity. This project also included an access road to the manure storage.

Cover Crops in Stanley

This cover crop mix will stay on the field throughout the winter. Cover crops reduce soil and nutrient runoff into our local waterways and helps soil health for the next year’s crop.
