Using Bactifeed as an organic bacteriological composting accelerator
Organic microbes and nutrients speed the rate your compost pile composts and increases the quality of your product!
"I have been the compost manager at the Fairfax Companies' Compost production facility for 3 years. During that time, I have had considerable experience with Bactifeed because we use it to produce compost 365 days a year.
I have found that it is very easy to use, and by varying the concentration rates, I can produce high grade quality compost in as little as 16 weeks, and when our demand is not so great, I can reduce the concentration to manage our inventory and still have a high quality compost.
Because our compost is loaded with microbes, the demand for it has grown every season.
We consistently maintain 30 piles of compost. When I first took over this facility, we turned the yard over once or twice a year. Now we turn the yard over 5 - 8 times a year, and that is a lot of compost and we will have to expand the facility to keep up with the demand."

Create field / market-ready compost 2, 3, or even four times faster than traditional composting methods!
Normally composting is a time-driven process, using water and turning devices to assist in anaerobic decomposition.
Bactifeed accelerates this process by putting literally billions of microbes into your compost piles which aerobically break down the compost. Utilizing the power of microbes, Bactifeed dramatically speeds the breakdown of organic materials and allows more field-ready compost to be generated in the same amount of time.
Commercial compost companies who historically composted for 9-12 months have found that, using Bactifeed, they were able to cut that time to as little as 60 to 90 days depending on how aggressive they were with product application.
And the best part is the end product: superior-quality, rich, fertile compost ready for sale or use on your farm!
Easy to use Bactifeed is extremely simple to use, with virtually no additional labor involved and no Hazmat licenses, specialized equipment or protective equipment required!
Faster turnaround With Bactifeed, less time is required to turn raw compost / manure into usable / sellable product.
Reduced production costs Bactifeed reduces in fuel and labor expenses because the each pile requires fewer turns, less water and has a shorter cycle between the start of composting and use or sale.
Cost effective At just pennies per yard per treatment, Bactifeed instantly makes your composting operation more profitable.
Better product With Bactifeed a much higher quality product is generated that is loaded with microbes which will continue to break down manures after they leave your yard and permanently enrich the soils to which it is applied.
Commercial composting success story
This composting operation is located in Tucson, Arizona.
After testing Bactifeed against other biological products, this composter set up his operation to utilize Bactifeed at scale. Presently, this composter has 6-10 piles going at any given time, representing over 3000 cubic yards of compost in various stages of production.
Bactifeed has helped this composting operation in two ways.
First, by accelerating the rate at which usable / salable compost is generated, this operation has substantially increased its profitability by being able to generate more compost per year with largely unchanged fixed costs and labor requirements.
Second, the quality of the compost -- particularly its active biological content -- is much better, leading to an increased number of happy repeat customers.
