Do you know if Amish people compost their humanure?

Some do, but most don't. Here in western PA they use outhouses with "vaults" or waterproof containers that are pumped out periodically by septage trucks. The Amish are like anyone else -- some are progressive and are organic gardeners, etc., but most are not.
