An Artisan Farmstead Cheese
Powered by Poop
Ever become paralyzed with anxiety over your carbon footprint? I do every damn day. Cows are big animals, which means they take big shits. All that poop amounts to a lot of methane escaping into the environment. What does one do with all that shit? You could convert it into energy, and Point Reyes Farmstead Cheese Company in California is doing just that. The creamery recently installed a methane digester that converts methane from poop into electricity that’s used to power the cheesemaking plant. The result is a fine artisan cheese with peace of mind.
