About Kreher Enterprises
We have been farming since Henry and Wilhelmina purchased some land in Amherst NY in 1924. The manure from our laying hens was used as a crop fertilizer on our farm. In 1994 we put in a new style of housing in which the manure was collected on conveyor belts and could be easily transported every few days to a composting building. We contracted with a local equipment manufacturer to build a composting machine.
In 1997 we installed a pellet mill to convert the composted poultry manure to a form which could be dried and was easy to handle. As our customer base grew and word spread about our product, we began to supply some large fertilizer marketers. At times we were shipping product as far south as Alabama.
As the local organic movement grew, we began supplying organic farms in New York, Vermont, Massachusetts and Connecticut.
Since our composted manure is from chickens that are egg producers, our fertilizer contains higher amounts of calcium due to the dietary requirements of the hens. Composting the manure raises the temperature to over 135 degrees F which kills any weed seeds that may pass through the hens and also kills off any harmful bacteria.

Composted Poultry Manure
Our compost is produced by turning poultry manure approximately every 3 days. By supplying forced air through the pile we are able to keep the piles from going anaerobic. We monitor temperatures to make sure the pile temperature is over 135 degrees F for more than 3 turns of the pile. This product is sold in bulk form by the ton in truck load lots.
Belt House Manure
This is manure from our henhouses which is NOT composted. It can be used as a general use soil amendment.
