Crane Meadows Grade-A Best

Yesterday, I had the wonderful pleasure of celebrating my youngest grandchild’s sixth birthday. He is a beautiful child who lives on a farm with horses. In fact he and his older brother have a unique pet named Buddy. Buddy is a pony. How cool is that?

This is the simplest way I can describe the process of making compost. Buddy has three friends in the barn with him. Together they form the foundation for an amazing process that turns hay into rich organic compost. The brown machine has a little help from farmers who harvest the grass and make it into hay. At the end, they get more help from the farmer who completes the process by aerating and aging the raw material that forms the basic ingredient of compost.

These photos best describe how Crane Meadows Farm produces Grade-A organic compost that every gardener covets.

Crane Meadows Farm begins with rich green alfalfa; harvested, dried, and baled.

Kitty, the barn cat, zealously guards the raw material headed for the compost process.

Buddy and friends eagerly grind the hay to begin the process.

What we don't want to be.

The brown machine digests the hay and exhausts raw pellets ready for the next step.

Pellets stacked and ready for the next step.

The raw pellets move to bin-one for three months of aging.

The pellet mash transfers to bin-two for aeration, and another three months of aging.

The mash moves to bin-three. Note the color and texture change after nine months.
