How Agrisolar Helped the Cows Come Home to One Northeast Farm

For more than 150 years, Knowlton Family Farms in Grafton, Massachusetts, has been a family-owned operation. It has grown and shrunk over the years, and now it is back in a period of expansion thanks to combining solar-energy production with agriculture.

This video, produced for the National Center for Appropriate Technology’s AgriSolar Clearinghouse, tells the story of how the Knowlton family has been able to reintroduce cattle to their farm for the first time since they sold the last of their dairy cows in 1995. Now cattle graze among the solar panels.
