Marketing On-Farm Compost: A Toolkit of Resources for Farm Compost Operators


Northeast SARE website, February 2012

Marketing is essential to a successful composting operation and is connected to best practices, compost quality, finding and serving a market, and other key tasks. Athena Lee Bradley of the Northeast Recycling Council developed this online resource to support farmers who make and sell compost and to help others understand compost markets in the Northeast. The content includes best practices, compost quality, finding and serving a market,and a wide range of other farmer-ready topics.

This material can also be requested on compact disk for farmers who prefer offline reading and for farmers whose internet access might be weak or sketchy. The disk and postage and handling are currently being offered at no charge.
