Carroll to air dispute over organic farm's odor

February 16, 2010

Carroll County officials have put together a committee to hear a dispute between the proprietors of an organic farm and neighbors who say it smells bad, according to a report in the Carroll County Times. Phil and Victoria Snader are the owners of Enviro-Organic Technologies Inc. in Marston. They take natural materials from food processing plants - including spice waste from McCormick and residuals from slaughterhouses - and give them to farmers as an alternative to commercial fertilizers. The Snaders also use the materials at their own farm. Nearby residents have been complaining to the county and state about odors from the farm for more than a year.
