Recycle Your Fall Porch Decor

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

Pigs LOVE to eat pumpkins and gourds!

How it works:

  • Drop off your pumpkins/gourds anytime!
  • There should be a cart for pumpkins marked with a sign and parked near the farm stand at the end of our driveway.
  • If the cart isn't there, feel free to drop your pumpkins on the ground next to the farm stand.

Other items we'll happily accept:

  • Kitchen scraps - can be fed to pigs or chickens or composted.  More details here.
  • Corn stalks - can be fed to pigs and/or composted.
  • Straw bales - can be used as livestock bedding, garden mulch, or composted.
  • Fall leaves - wonderful for the gardens and compost pile.
  • Grass clippings - wonderful for the gardens and compost pile.
  • Christmas trees - can be fed to goats, composted, chipped for garden use, or burned.  More details here.
