Project Main Details
Collins and Alison Bullard along with their two sons, Garrett and Jack, raise turkeys, swine, grains, fruits and vegetables on their farm in Stedman, N.C. Their farm was established in 1855, and while Collins grew up on the farm, it wasn’t until their first son was born that they decided to move back to the family farm.
Today, the Bullards raise approximately 180,000 tom turkeys a year for Prestage Farms in their eight turkey barns.
With the farm now in its fifth generation, the Bullards understand that they have an important role in helping feed the world. Being good stewards of the land, air, water and natural resources are essential aspects of fulfilling that role.
This commitment is demonstrated through the Bullard’s precise management of nutrients contained in the 2700 tons of litter generated on the farm each year. Global positioning system technology is used to apply litter at varying rates according to crop need and residual nutrient levels in the soil.
In addition to litter, the Bullards use composting as an eco-friendly way of disposing any mortality that may occur on the farm. The dedicated structure that can hold and compost up to 90,000 pounds of material at any given time uses forced air to make the composting process more efficient.
In order to manage the farm’s energy and water consumption, the turkey barns are outfitted with some of the latest technology that allows the Bullards to continuously monitor environmental conditions inside the turkey barns, while on the farm and remotely.
For family farms like the Bullards, sustainability is a way of life. The family recognizes their livelihood depends on the natural resources God has provided, and being a good steward means it is necessary to not only protect these resources but improve them too.
The Bullards recognize that the farm’s sustainability and profitability are interdependent. By carefully managing their farm to minimize adverse impacts on environmental resources, water quality and wildlife they make their farm more sustainable and by default increase the likelihood of making it more profitable.
