This video is a project of the water stewardship video series by the Ecological Farming Association. This video features Straus Family Creamery in Tomales Bay, CA. President, Albert Straus discusses the farm's energy production system of methane digestion, which utilizes recycled water, and methane captured from cow manure. The methane produced from the breakdown of manure is turned into enough energy to run their whole dairy, power Albert's car and put power back onto the grid. Now that is some powerful poop!
