Clovermead Farms operate a circular dairy farm where they produce their own cow feed, and they use cow manure and local food waste to operate an anaerobic digester that produces heat, electricity, and fertilizer to sustain their operations.
Oreka Solutions is a 360-degree circular business that recycles the nutrients from food that would otherwise be thrown away back into our food system.
