CowPots: Creating a value-added product out of manure
Written by Progressive Dairyman Editor Jenna Hurty
Almost seven years ago, Progressive Dairyman told its readers about a new, biodegradable pot being produced by Freund’s Farm in East Canaan, Connecticut. They called them CowPots.
CowPots spread to 27 states within the first three years of their marketing campaign and was featured on Mike Rowe’s Dirty Jobs, the Larry King Show, the Today Show, NBC News, CBS News and several radio stations. Today, the pots have made it all across the U.S., as well as into Canada, Italy and the United Kingdom.
