Compost, compost, compost compost! A day rarely goes by when John and I don't receive a request to help someone with their compost. We are currently working to accommodate three different compost requests. First, folks are asking if we can pick up their food scraps. Second, folks are asking if we can help them set up their own compost bin and help maintain it. Third, we are working with an organization to help them set-up an onsite compost facility so they can divert food scraps from the landfill.

The corn auger accessory allows for the grinding of any sized grain, from small Amaranth to large corn kernels, wheats, oats, even beans. The mill is accessorized with a measured hopper and a food-grade bin with lid. It cannot grind wet [...]
