To produce the highest quality soil amending products that our customers can consistently count on year after year. While at the same time educating the public about how to abstain from illegally dumping, burning, and unnecessarily using landfills for recyclable waste.
BFC was founded in 2001 by Stan Berkbuegler. Stan saw a need within the community for food waste disposal such as pre and post consumer foods as well as non-desirable animal cuts.
Anaerobic Digestion is the process used by BFC to treat this waste. This allows us to harness the energy and nutrients from the now decomposing compost. The nutrients within the compost stimulate plant growth through a timed release while simultaneously protecting the landscape against weather extremes, especially drought, by keeping soils warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.
