A compost farm at Stemilt Growers Inc., Wenatchee, Wash., allows the company to feed its trees organic fertilizer made from green waste such as leaves, culled fruit and wood chips.  

Stemilt Growers Inc. partner and grower Kyle Mathison started a 23-acre compost farm on Stemilt Hill five years ago with a plan to feed his trees organic fertilizer by recycling green waste from the Wenatchee, Wash.-based company’s orchards and pack houses.

“We are fortunate to have been on the forefront of sustainability and will continue to look for economic ways to protect the environment and natural resources that are so important to the future success of our business.”
