What is the volume of composting today at Wallace Farm?
Since the early 1990s, we have naturally composted up to 100,000 tons of recyclable materials each year. We proudly produce the highest quality of compost, soil products and mulches available and provide a means to reduce, recycle, and reuse many types of valuable organic products. This protects the environment and helps to save our planet from greenhouse gases generated in landfills.

When did Wallace Farm start composting?
Composting has been a significant part of our business since the 1960s. Seven generations ago, our ancestors started farming this land in 1863 growing crops and raising livestock. In 1945, the farm started a dairy operation and shortly after added a poultry operation. In the 1960s, the farm added composting to the crop, dairy and poultry operations growing it to its current level in the early 1990s. Current agricultural activities include: raising miniature horses, production of hay, and producing premium top soil, potting soil, planting soil, soil conditioner, composted cow manure, compost and mulches. Our composted cow manure and compost plus products are registered with the N.C. Department of Agriculture.

When did you receive your permit?
We began the initial permitting process in 1996 resulting in our 2000 Type 3 Compost Facility Permit. The permit process typically takes the North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources (NCDENR) several years. We began the normally lengthy process of renewing the 5-year permit in February, 2005. By law we were entitled to continue to operate under our 2000 permit while we were in the renewal process.

What is the status of the current permit application?
Our Large, Type 3 Solid Waste Compost Facility permit was renewed on April 22, 2010.

Did you sell the property to Highland Creek?
The owners and current officers of Wallace Farm, Inc. did not sell any land to Highland Creek. My grandfather, though not interested in selling any land, was approached repeatedly by the developer of Highland Creek in the initial planning stages regarding two separate strips of land they desperately needed to straighten their property line and gain sewer access. In order to help them, he sold two parcels of land that did not exceed a total of 45 acres.

What products do you compost?
Wallace Farm products are of the highest quality. Our compost ingredients consist of ground wood products, yard waste, cotton, animal manures, produce such as lettuces and vegetables, and food processing materials such as pasta, rice, and flour. We voluntarily do not compost any meat, fish or bones.
