Local Food Scrap Composting

Compost Queen is proud to partner with Somewhere in La Mancha Farm in South Fort Collins. This woman and minority owned farm is a prime example of a working urban farm and provides educational resources for local youth. 

The team at Somewhere in La Mancha embodies stewardship of the land and animals in a beneficial relationship for all. Goats, Cows, Alpacas, and over 100 Birds including Heritage Chickens and Turkeys all thrive at the farm with the love from the supporting community. The farm is a place to learn your food journey by getting your hands dirty and participating in your own discovery of the food cycle. 

Compost Queen will be collecting food scraps for composting at Somewhere in La Mancha Farm, managing on site compost operations and delivering some of the bounty of the farm to curbside compost subscribers. Active aerobic composting at working farms accelerates the process of renewing carbon resources into nutrient dense soil amendments. This process closes the loop from spent carbon resources to enriching new carbon resources, starting the food cycle over again. 


How Does Drop Off Food Scrap Composting Work?

Pick up your green Compost Queen bucket from the farm. They’ll be in our drop container, and your welcome email will have instructions.

Fill your bucket with acceptable compostable items. We’re not taking meat, dairy or compostable packaging to start.

Bring the bucket back to the farm once you fill it up! Take a breath and enjoy the serenity before you go back to your busy life.

Dump the contents of your bucket into the receptacle at the farm. Don’t tie your green bags please!

Take a new compostable bag to line your green bucket and help keep it clean. These are provided in the compost drop container.

Come back when your bucket is full or when you just need a break from the normal day. Keep an eye out for special farm events and goodies!

No Mess!

Is your green bucket full? Time to visit the farm for a drop-off. 

Refreshing your bucket at our convenient drop off location only takes a few moments.

No Smell!
