In order to be more eco-friendly, Lyon Ranch has flipped the switch and become solar. While we've grown a lot of our own produce for the animals over the years, electricity is not as simple to harvest. Throughout both the summer and winter, many of our animals require climate controlled environments using air conditioners, heaters or heating pads. Additionally, due to specialized diets, we can never have too many freezers. Solar panels will go a long way in reducing our carbon footprint.
