CowPots: One Dairy Cow’s Manure is Another Man’s Garden Gold

June 18, 2018

Tri-State Livestock News
It all started when farmer Matt Freund had an idea!

From Idea to Innovation

He found one large cooking pot, grabbed a few handfuls of composted cow manure, and he stirred up a burnished stew of manure fibers.

This cooked up concoction was formed into the very first CowPot.  And the cooking pot? It was not allowed back in the kitchen for any more farmhouse dinners! Today the CowPots products are made just a few hundred feet from where the cows provide the raw material every single day. 

It's been nearly 20 years!

As Matt worked to perfect his recipe, universities and growers used CowPots in greenhouse growing trials. The experiments proved that he could in fact build a better biodegradable pot for gardeners and growers!

There's a CowPot for every growing need:
