Livestock as Food Recyclers

Nutritious… and FREE!

sortingIn our efforts to operate a sustainable, urban agricultural education center for children, it was imperative that we secure an affordable, nutritious food source for our livestock. What we found was a bounty of free, fresh, and nutritious food right in the heart of our community.  High food safety and quality standards guarantee that our local grocery stores will throw away over 400 pounds of great produce and grain products on a DAILY basis.

On average, we collect and feed over 1000 lbs of these quality produce and grain products daily. This is food that would have otherwise gone straight to the landfill. This means that our livestock are single-handedly recycling and diverting from the landfill over 400 tons of food every year.
