In 1989, we began composting as an alternative to handling and storing raw hen manure. For decades since, we have used the manure from our laying hens as a crop fertilizer on our farm.
Today, we continue our goal to be sustainable with the production of compost and fertilizer from our egg farms.
We have developed a dry, flowable product for use in organic crop production. Composting the manure mineralizes nutrients which
creates slow release nitrogen and soluble nutrients, which duplicates what naturally occurs with soil microbes over time, while minimizing phosphate and nutrient build up. Our process has both biological and heat treatments steps which meet FSMA guidelines to ensure the product is safe for use in growing the finest food for you, your family and your customers.
