The Whiting Farm

With the costs of chemicals and artificial fertilizers, new fees on unmanageable manure pits, growing vet bills, and fields not recovering, The Whiting’s Farm was on the brink of bankruptcy. They’d soon have to shut down unless they found a solution.

After being introduced to Dr. Elaine by a local composting company, the Whitings found a way to restore their land, their animals’ health and their financial stability in a short turnaround. Check out how in this case study.
