David Bill and Faith Van De Putte of Midnight’s Farm on Lopez Island run a Department of Ecology “farm exempt" aerated static pile compost facility, raise pork and cattle, run a farm stay, and have a no-till market garden. In this episode of Tilth Alliance's Farm Walks Podcast, we talk with them about their biochar research and elements of a safe on-farm compost system. Later in the episode, we check in with Nate Stacey, soil scientist and Farm Program Director at Tilth Alliance and delve into more things compost.
