dc.description.abstractStonyvale farm was founded by W.J. Peabody and has been in the family for five generations up to the current manager Travis Fogler. The farm milks about 850 Holsteins and has a total of about 1700 head of animals on-site. Stonyvale raises forage crops on about 2,000 acres of land that goes to feed the dairy herd. W.J. Peabody started the farm with a few dairy cows and other cropping income. When his son-in-law, John Fogler came back to the farm in the early ’50s, he grew the herd to about 75 cows. John’s son Bob returned to the farm in the early ’70s to grow the herd to about 450 cows. When Travis returned to the farm from gaining a degree from Cornell University in 1999, the family decided to begin to grow to 1000 cows. Travis said that the farm will grow as much as the land base will allow. The digester is overseen and operated by John and Adam Wintle. The digester is a separate business entity under the company name Exeter Agri-Energy (EAE) Construction on the digester began in August of 2011 and was complete by December of 2011en_US
