Where Does all that Manure Go??

As you can imagine, we have more than our fair share of horse manure, old straw, shavings and more. The animals put out more than 100 tons of manure over the last 12 months.

So, how do we deal with it? Well we have two ways, one is in the following video, spreading it on our crops, the other, selling it to kind folks such as yourselves, farmers that are farming organically and anybody else that wants a good quality compost. This helps to bring in program funding for the Sanctuary and aligns with our mission to become completely sustainable.

Thank you to Ray Reichley for the use of his time and equipment in hauling and spreading this on the fields. As you can tell, we are going to be in need of equipment in order to further this project for the Sanctuary, we were fortunate to have Ray's help this time.
