      Just Perfect!

          Best Uses

            This compost bucket is ideal for my 1840s VT farmhouse - looks great in the kitchen. It's a decent size, but I still find myself emptying it more often than I would like.

            As mentioned before, the neck is a bit narrow so I try to tear up larger pieces before putting in - but it's not that much of a hassle (though I supposed it could be if you use compost bags).

            The first one that arrived had horrible attempts at making it look "rustic" - lots of smeared black paint, but Gardener's sent out a replacement right away.

            Pros

            • Easy to clean
            • Holds a lot

            Cons

            • Bag Slips Inside
            • Hard to empty
            • Industrial Appeasrasnce
            • Neck too narrow

            Best Uses

            • Composting kitchen waste

            The narrow neck precludes easily removing the bag to empty out the kitchen waste. The container is so deep, the bag slips down inside it unless held in place with a rubber band.

            • Kitchen

            I use these to help keep the crocs clean however they don't fit the farmhouse crock and they dissolve and tear easily if there is a lot of "juicy" scraps.

            Best Uses

            • Chicken Feed Pail
            • Compost Pail

            I use this pail to collect vegetable scraps for my chickens and it is perfect. I have gotten a lot of compliments on this pail. It fits perfectly on the kitchen counter and can hold a lot of scraps. The lid can be hard to remove sometimes but most of the time it is easy.

            Farmhouse Compost Pail

            By Lynn the composter

            from Wisconsin

            Verified Buyer

            Pros

              Cons

                Best Uses

                  The Farmhouse milk can compost pail is quaint but not practical due to the poor design. The neck, being smaller than the body, makes it virtually impossible to remove the filled compost bag. Ideally, the entire top of the body should be able to be removed for easier emptying. I'm glad I kept my old compost bucket.

                  Best Uses

                    I like this bucket. I use the bags in it and love both of them. The lid is kind of hard to remove and replace but may loosen a little with use. I like the size and the look.

                                Perfect size, but neck area can make emptying quickly difficult and the handle snapped off after a month, had to use sheet metal screw to re-attach

                                      Hi, this is Sue from Tennessee amending my earlier review. I still love this item very much, and wanted to add that my handles appear strong, no problems, but I did not get the filters in the box and had to order those separately. Hopefully if they see this review they will send me some - a little disappointed with that, even though still thrilled with the item!

                                        Love the style and finish. Poorly made for the price. Lid handle is flimsy. It snapped off the first time I opened the lid. Very disappointed.
