Feed the Pigs!
Recycle Your Food Scraps

We LOVE to save biodegradable items from landfill!  Especially because most of them can be used to feed our animals or to feed the soil.  It's a win-win!

Pigs will eat almost anything.  A few things to avoid:

  • avocado pits
  • citrus skins/rinds
  • tea bags
  • coffee grounds
  • large amounts of raw potatoes

All other food scraps can go in the bucket:  

  • meat
  • veggies
  • fruit
  • liquids: milk, juice, etc.
  • eggs
  • egg shells
  • grains
  • bones
  • raw foods
  • cooked foods
  • spoiled foods
  • burned foods
  • potato peelings
  • Etc. 

How it works:

Drop off your full bucket at our farm stand and take home a clean bucket.  Anytime!

A quick text to 571-420-1298 is helpful, to alert us that a full bucket is waiting at the stand.

Other items we'll happily accept:

  • Pumpkins and gourds - can be fed to pigs or chickens or composted.  More details here.
  • Corn stalks - can be fed to pigs or composted
  • Straw bales - can be used as livestock bedding, garden mulch, or composted
  • Fall leaves - wonderful for the gardens and compost pile
