The Nevada County Resource Conservation District (NCRCD) has organized an exchange service that can benefit livestock owners and gardeners.  The Manure Exchange Program helps connect farmers, gardeners, and landowners searching for sources of local manure/compost with livestock owners and managers who have excess fresh and/or composted manure. This program is a resource for the community seeking a nearby source for fresh fertilizer and is a great way to recycle local natural resources!

The individuals on the Manure Providers List may or may not be commercial composters.  Their manure/compost is not certified to be "weed free" or "certified organic".  No guarantees apply.  Providers are not responsible to pay your hauling costs or any costs associated with vehicle/dump-truck rentals, etc.  This is a goodwill/community network project so please be considerate of those participating in this service.  Cool
