Composting plant - potential for food production.

Compost contains significant amounts of undegraded biomass, some of which can be transformed into food for humans or animals. Examples are vermicomposting and the production of black soldier flies. With a sufficient amount of compost input, a farm could theoretically focus largely on the production of feed/food from compost as a business model (products: compost, fish/chicken food). In the approach taken by Karl Hammer of Vermont Compost, chickens range freely on large compost piles (products: eggs, chickens, compost).
