    Here's another thing to look at.

    The EPA is pretty strict on composting and having the correct site to do it on.

    So, you might want to consider the size of your composting operation and the rules and regs before going forward.

    Yeah have not looked that far into it as far as producing enough for sale just for my property. I really like doing it though and seeing the transformation of the material. I also throw away alot less all of our garden scraps and such get turned into fertile soil.

    i had the same ideas so bought a chipper for the bobcat. to labour intensive. as the other poster said,a tub grinder is the only way to go.also the chips take a long time to compost. we currently compost all our grass clippings and leaves which works great. i than i had to build a trommel screen so that i could clean the material prior to selling it.
