Our Composting Process
The composting process starts with collecting the hens' waste on belts under their cages. It is then conveyed to the composting area. All along the way it is actively dried with forced air.
Once in the composting area it is aerated in windrows and turned systematically. The material undergoes significant biological actively over the approximately 45 day composting period. The material is naturally dried and stabilized during the process.
Following the composting period some of the material is used “as-is” on the farm and surrounding areas to grow organic crops. The remainder undergoes an extrusion process to form pellets.
The extruded pellets are then cooled, milled to size, and finally screened to make uniform, spreadable, granular Harmony, Symphony, and Crescendo organic fertilizers.
