going green

Since 1989, we have proudly led the restaurant industry in reducing the carbon footprint that threatens the beauty and well-being of our planet. We continue to challenge ourselves to be aware of new and improved measures to keep Earth as clean and green as we can.

setting standards

  • The Angus Barn recycles everything! In addition to cardboard, aluminum, glass and plastic, we recycle wine corks and old table cloths.
  • All biodegradable waste is converted to compost.
  • Meat scraps go to a CCI (Carnivore Conservation Institute), a non-profit carnivore rescue center in Goldsboro to help feed wolves, lions, tigers and many other rescued carnivores.
  • Oil used in fryers is converted to biodiesel fuel for trucks.
  • Water usage has been decreased 6,000 gallons a day.
  • The property is watered using our own lake water.
  • All chemicals used are green.
  • Energy consumption has been reduced 8% by installing energy efficient equipment and controls.
  • The Pavilion was built from reclaimed materials dating back to the 1600s.
  • Supporting local vendors is strongly encouraged to reduce fuel consumption.
  • The herbs we use come from our own garden.
