The Tub Grinder at Work on My Farm

It's very busy and very noisy up at my compost yard - one of the most important areas on my Bedford, New York farm.

If you saw my last blog, you know my outdoor grounds crew has been gathering lots of organic debris - logs, stumps, bark and brush, and piling it all up so it can be taken to the compost yard in preparation for the tub grinder. I like to call in the massive machine once a year or once every two years, to reduce the size of our debris pile into much finer, nutrient-rich mulch. The crew and the tub grinder from Material Processors Inc. in Warwick, New York have made so much progress over the last couple of weeks.

Here are some photos, enjoy.
