2013 Environmental Stewards: Blue Mountain Farms Anaerobic Digester

"We want to protect (our land) in a sustainable manner for future generations," says Jim Webb, a part of Blue Mountain Farms in MIlford, Utah.

Blue Mountain Farms, owned by Circle Four Farms, houses 21,000 feeder to finish animals and ships about 55,000 animals from farm to market each year.

The farm uses anaerobic digesters to create methane gas, which is sold to the local power company. Flushed from the under-barn pits to the digesters, the manure creates enough power from the methane gas to power 3,000 homes.
