Taking a close look at MDAR’s new farm compost regulations

Sometimes the rules need breaking and other times just tweaking. Which will it be? Right now, Massachusetts farmers have a chance to comment on the new on-farm composting regulations proposed by the Massachusetts Department of Agriculture (MDAR). Earlier this month I attended a listening session on these proposed regulations and wanted to share my concerns and to encourage our local farmers to comment to MDAR on the changes. The more voices MDAR hears, the more likely we will see favorable changes.
