    I received the following email. Any suggestions for this fellow?


    "Hi Tim, I need at least one supersack of compost for application on my organic farm. If you know of someone producing exceptionally high quality compost near Illinois, I would be interested. I am looking for compost that has been tested by SFI or some other reliabel firm. Thank you!"

    Tim,
    I don't know where he is located but my buddy Mike (Milwaukee) makes exceptional compost number thru the roof and always tested.

    I am not sure if it is OMRI certified though

    Did the gentleman say where in IL he was located? Believe it or not our local dump has some exceptional compost, and I did talk to a guy that said he tested it, and it was good, especially since its only 10.50 a yard. Now I didn't get any numbers or anything, and he could be blowing my horn, but if your customer was willing to test it, it may be a good solution for him.

    All he said is what I posted. What town/city are you speaking of?
