Like any business, your farm needs propane services you can count on to be there for you.

We provide complete propane services for your farm, starting when we work with you to determine what propane can do for your farm and what you will need from us. From there, we provide:
Propane’s versatility, energy efficiency and environmental friendliness make it an outstanding energy source for a wide range of applications on farms in Eastern North Carolina.
Crop drying – Propane’s energy efficiency and precise temperature control are ideal for flue-curing tobacco leaves, as it is a cost-effective way to get the job done while helping to ensure the best results.
Flame weed control – Whether you practice organic farming or are looking for a more expedient, budget-friendly way of stopping weeds from damaging your crops, propane flame weed control is for you.
Livestock heating – Propane provides reliable, energy-efficient heating for your livestock barns thanks to its being stored on-site in your propane tanks. You aren’t at the mercy of a utility’s infrastructure.
Poultry house sanitation and heating – Protect your poultry and your investment with propane-powered sanitation and heating.
These are just the beginning of the ways that having propane on your farm can help give you cost-effective energy.
Propane heating is also ideal for greenhouses and to heat water for barns, poultry houses and other outbuildings.
If you use forklifts on your farm, propane-powered forklifts offer safe indoor/outdoor use, quick and easy refueling (just replace the empty cylinder with a full one and it’s back on the job), and superior, long-lasting power that works great on inclines and in wet conditions. We provide customized forklift cylinder exchange services.
Are you building a new barn or other outbuilding? Tidewater Energy’s temporary construction heating helps your project move forward while protecting materials when the weather gets cold.
