Solar Array Grazing Services

Vegetation management is essential to optimal performance of solar panels. Tall weeds and creeping vines compromise efficiency surprisingly quickly. Sheep provide a more effective, labor-efficient, and environmentally friendly method of vegetation control than mechanical mowing, string trimming, and herbicide use. In this model, a sheep producer is contracted to keep a flock at the site during the growing season.

Owens Farm provides this service for Susquehanna University’s solar array in Selinsgrove, Pennsylvania. 

Our flock can help with your solar project. Contact us at Consulting services available. 

We were recently featured in our local TV news using sheep to graze a solar array.
