      • 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.

      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.

      the cutest compost pail ever

      By cologoatlady68

      from Colorado

      Verified Buyer

      Pros

      • Perfect size

      Cons

      • Lid hard to remove

      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.

                                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!

                                Best Uses

                                  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.
