Fair Oaks farmer: A Good Housekeeping Awesome Woman

Published:

Congratulations to Fair Oaks Farm and Fairlife co-founder, Sue McCloskey as she was selected one of the 2017 Good Housekeeping Awesome Women Award honorees.

Fair Oaks is not only committed to educating the public about modern farming efforts, but also to protecting the environment and sustainable farming.

Recognized in Good Housekeeping for converting cow poop into clean fuel, McClouskey’s entire facility in Indiana runs on cow and pig manure. Using anaerobic digesters, Fair Oaks reduces their dependency upon natural gas and electricity during the milk and manufacturing process. This year the use of CNG will reduce the amount of diesel their milk tanker/trailers use by 2 million gallons. Their barns and plants are also powered by this cutting edge “poo power.”

This is all in addition to launching Fairlife milk which contains 50% more protein, 30% more calcium, and half the sugars typically found in milk.

Congrats Sue!
