American-Made Propane on the Farm

Propane Helps Feed the World!

With 7 billion people to feed, being a farmer is not a 9-to-5 job. In fact, more than half of farmers in the United States report that they work 10 to 14 hours per day.

With the workload Southern Maryland farmers like you have, propane can make it easier for you to run your farm efficiently and profitably. Propane is a cleaner, greener, more versatile fuel source. Because the supply of propane in the United States is sufficient to meet our needs here at home, we also export it to other countries that can’t produce enough on their own. Thus, farms all over the world can take advantage of all propane can do.

Taylor Gas is the region’s leader for agricultural propane services. We’ve been working with local farmers for more than 70 years. We have the knowledge and insights that big national propane companies don’t and put our experience to work creating a customized propane service for your farm.

We not only set up propane tanks for your farm and buildings, we provide reliable bulk propane delivery so you’ll always have the propane you need.

How Is Propane Used on Farms?

With about 20,000 broiler chickens on Southern Maryland farms — along with the laying hens, cattle, horses, pigs, and other livestock — propane provides reliable, safe barn and poultry house heating.

Propane also provides heating to greenhouses so the crops inside stay at the proper temperature.

You don’t have to worry about power outages when you use whole-building backup generators to keep the lights on and equipment running in your barns, other outbuildings, and your home.

Propane flame weed control is the best way to get rid of weeds in your fields. First, you’re not exposing yourself, your workers, or the environment to dangerous herbicides. Second, you don’t have to wait to go back to work after using propane flame weed control as you do with herbicides.

Another advantage of propane is that it’s a site-based energy source. Unlike electricity or natural gas, you don’t have to rely on the utility company.

Propane is safe for the environment. Unlike gasoline or diesel, propane will not harm air, soil, water, or plant life in the rare event that a leak occurs. Furthermore, propane is clean burning, so the work environment is safer for you and your workers without the emissions from gasoline or diesel.
