Composting is important. It’s the quickest way to turn our waste into useable, nutritious soil, to keep growing those delicious ingredients we need for beer! Both The Den and The Ranch taprooms operate zero-waste, which means an average of 330 lbs. of waste is diverted from landfill to compost per month. Once picked up by the folks at Compost Nashville, Jackalope’s compost is driven to a local processor in Ashland City, TN, where it breaks down in around 4.5-6 months, depending on a number of factors like temperature, and aerates and turns into nutrient dense, useable soil. The soil is then donated back to local farms and community gardens.
This year, we’ve diverted this many pounds of waste to compost: The Ranch – 632 lbs.
The Den – 2002.50 lbs.
To date, Compost Nashville has worked to save over 2.5 million pounds of compostable material from landfills.
