At Grafton Solar, cattle are grazing nearby fields of squash and lettuce at the 150-year-old family operation known as Knowlton Farms. Located in Grafton, Massachusetts, this project is demonstrating how diverse agricultural production can be maintained underneath a 2MW community solar array + 1.4MW of battery energy storage.
In August 2022, ASGA Board President Jonathan Barter and “The Grass Whisperer” Troy Bishopp joined us for a lively discussion on how to plan grazing management.
For their follow up, Jonathan and Troy led a discussion focused…
