According to the United States Energy Information Administration, agricultural activity requires a huge amount of energy consumption. Farms tend to use diesel or propane to work the land, while indirect actions like manufacturing pesticides also take up significant energy. As a result, the farming industry can have a substantial carbon footprint.

Organic Valley, the largest organization of organic farmers in the United States, has recently stepped up to lessen the impact of farming and created a plan to source 100 percent renewable energy. The company will harness solar energy to hit their new goal, and in the process, they’ll become the world’s largest food company to run entirely on renewable energy.
