      Farmhouse Compost Pail

          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.

                                  I squealed when I saw this in the catalog. I've been hunting for a vintage can similar to this one and am thrilled I found the perfect style and size new. I leave it out on the counter and have had compliments from family and neighbor. Since I live on a real little farm - it's the perfect choice. Buy it you will LOVE it! Sits next to my wire egg basket and I don't worry about breaking it because it's metal.

                                        This is a great size, no odors. When I take it out to empty into the compost, I feel like I'm a kid on the farm again :). I have the spinning dual barrel compost bin, and one side is halfway full now.

                                            This is very cute and charming and perfect for my kitchen...UNTIL you look at the black metal plate that holds a very flimsy metal tab with a hole in it for the handle. My guess is that tab will last a matter of months. Boo. One tab is already bent and the handle does not swivel correctly and the coloration is already wearing off of it. In the photo, you can't see the ugly black metal piece that does not fit the overall aesthetic of the pail. I'm debating about sending it back. I received several things from this catalog today and I'd say it's mostly over-priced with cheap, flimsy components and construction. I won't be ordering more. A shame!

                                                  I was mistaken in my previous review (this was a gift I received and the filters that DID come with the pail were accidentally left out by the giver). Couldn't find a way to edit my first review, so wanted to be sure to correct.
