Compost Queen operates Conditionally Exempt Small Quantity food scrap facilities throughout Larimer County, keeping your carbon footprint hyper local.
Farmers get the benefit of having a managed composting process that remediates pathogens and unwanted seeds to produce a high quality soil amendment and fertilizer.
Your food scraps go to improving local soils and growing high quality crops right where you live. The best part? You get access to high quality food scrap compost from Compost Queen.
Composting is the process of turning organic material into a soil amendment through the use of an aerobic process that requires water, carbon and nitrogen. Compost Queen does thermophilic composting, relying on microbes, bacteria, nematodes, amoebas, fungus and more to accelerate decomposition.
Finding the perfect balance of recipe for your feedstocks and your environment leads to the production of a high quality soil amendment often known as compost, or particulate organic matter. This material can greatly increase soil organic matter, water retention and crop yields.
We make small batch, craft compost to build better soils, reduce greenhouse gasses and improve local agricultural production.
