We’re bullish about free compost!

All news We’re bullish about free compost!

  1. The cows eat organic feeds.
  2. They produce organic milk – and manure.
  3. Select organic biodegradable waste materials, such as sawdust, are added.
  4. Micro-organisms do their work.
  5. The compost is tested for readiness: pH, mineral concentrations, humidity, texture and even odour!
  6. Some soil, moss and lime – all organic, of course – are stirred into the mixture. Voilà! The organic compost is ready to use.

  • To receive organic certification, farmers must follow a strict set of standards including a transition period lasting at least three years.
  • Quebec has the most certified-organic dairy farms in Canada, with a total of 140 – 53% of all such operations in the country.
  • 42% of Canada’s organic milk is produced here.
  • The green fertilizers used on cow pastures have no synthetic raw materials (chemical fertilizers, GMOs, pesticides).
  • A wide variety of products are made from organic milk: yogurt, cream, butter, and nearly 80 different cheeses.
  • In the last 10 years, organic milk production has increased by 83%.
