Good things come from reducing, reusing, and recycling. King Cole’s goal has been 100% usage of the product we produce and our waste is an important part of that sustainable story.
We purchase wood shavings from local wood-working companies to use as bedding on a variety of our farm locations. At the end of each cycle, barns are cleaned thoroughly and the manure-laden shavings are removed to our compost site. Twenty years of composting experience allows us to create a clean, odourless, consistent, all-natural soil enhancer that boasts a neutral PH level. Gardeners and green trades alike will vouch for the “growing power” of King Cole’s duck compost. Our own land is farmed with cash crops that receive a bi-annual dose of duck fertilizer for increased crop yields.
In addition, two-thirds of our water is completely recycled and used to clean the barns as part of our intensive sanitation protocols.
