In early 2021, the manager of Churchill Stables received a grant from the Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources (MDRA) and initiated a project to transform hay and horse manure collected from stalls into compost using the environmentally friendly windrow method. The compost created is now used on the horse pastures and available to Huckins Farm landscaping crew and residents.

The Huckins Farm Homeowners Trust encourages this project which benefits our community environment.
