The finishing monoslope facility here at Funk Farms uses corn stalks for bedding which results in a manure pack that can be spread on the crop fields or further humified to a nutrient rich compost.
This increased production of a nutrient rich product has allowed us to establish a composting product that can be recycled onto the fields or marketed as a compost product through the nursery market. This is stored in bulk as well as bagged.
Another benefit of the compost operation is the production of Compost Tea. Compost Tea is a liquid extract that is rich in Humic, and Fulvic acids, macro, and miro nutrients, and beneficial microorganisms that is used as starter fertilizer for corn and soybeans. The compost tea is also used as the carrying agent when applying crop protection treatments.
