Tuesday Afternoon

This model facility has been composting race track horse bedding and collected food scraps from UMF since 2005. All compost created at the Farmington site is made available to the citizens for a small fee.

The facility uses a front-end loader to turn the compost piles.  The finished product is primarily sold in bulk for landscape and garden use.
