The English family has been dairy farming in North Cove, NC for four generations and have been leaders in the community and in implementing new farming techniques. They recently started making cheese as a way to add value to their product. As Terry English said, we’re limited on how many cows we can have so we’ve had to find other ways to bring in revenue. This four collector solar hot water system is in the same vein, helping to reduce operating costs and thereby increase margins. We were selected to design and install the hot water system by Jessica Hocz, executive director of Mountain Valleys RC&D.
