Reducing Farming’s Carbon Footprint
We’re all being asked to be more energy-efficient these days. Farmers and ranchers also deal with the issue as they try to reduce their consumption of fuel, water, and other elements that go into the production of food and fiber. One program in North Carolina is helping producers harvest some savings on their energy bills.

FEEP stands for the Farming Energy Efficiently Project. The project not only provides low-cost audits to determine how and where to save energy on the farm, it also helps farmers access state and federal aid to make changes that reduce the farm’s carbon footprint. We’ll see how dairy farmer Billy Johnson has benefited from the program.
