VanEngelen Dairy Farms and Hog Tied Farms - Lambton County
(Left to right: Joan and John VanEngelen; Lambton-Kent-Middlesex MPP Marie Van Bommel; Mike and Connie VanEngelen)
The VanEngelens, of Lambton County, have become partners in power. Ed, John and Mike VanEngelen installed Ontario's first on-farm 250 KW windmill to supply power for a dairy and a hog farm. The close proximity of the farms and the strong working relationship among the three men helped move this innovation forward. The large tower and wind generator provide a highly visible example for other farm operators interested in installing an alternative energy source.
