Is it worth the risk ? It may not be a good idea to humanaure compost for commercial vegi sales. There is probably a limit to what can be tested for and a probably limit on the accuracy of the tests.

Hello all I just joined yesterday.

Are there any others farmers out there?
We are a Small Vegetable operation in Northern Vermont. We are in our second year and we have a finished pile of compost that involves humanure. one of our bulk purchasers is very concerned about us applying the pile to our fields. Any leads on the best lab for pathogen testing? I called/emailed the composting council link above and I am waiting to hear back.
Humanure Composting is a key part of our farming ethos, and we want to have the numbers and paperwork to back up what we do to the non believers. Because we use humanure we can not applying for organic certification, so once again to repeat myself having science on our side would be a very useful Pr tool.
cheers,
Reed
