Meach Cove Farms


       Meach Cove Farms

   is located on 

   Lake Champlain in

   Shelburne, Vermont


Meach Cove Farms has always been interested in exploring ways to make better use of the natural resources available locally to offset the petroleum that is being used for space heating.  Being able to efficiently and dependably burn grass fuel that is raised on this or other Vermont farms would represent a huge step towards another renewable alternative to fossil fuels.


In September 2011 Meach Cove Farms was awarded an USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service Conservation Innovation Grant to further test and add new information to the research on grass pellet heating equipment and identify the most suitable species of grass fuel.
