Farms, Inc. began in 1985. The company started out beneficially
reusing wastewater biosolids by land applying them to farmland owned
and operated by Continental Farms, Inc. The utilization of biosolids
as a soil conditioner and fertilizer has grown steadily as the economic
and agronomic benefits have become clear. The recycling of biosolids
has proven environmentally sound when conducted in compliance with
the state (IL EPA) and federal (US EPA) regulations. Thousands
of acres of farmland are now benefiting from biosolids application
services provided by Continental Farms, Inc.
Farms, Inc. and Continental Services provided other services including,
dredging and dewatering of silt and sediment, utilization of phosphate
fertilizer recovered from byproducts of the detergent manufacturing
industry, and removal and land application of drinking water treatment
Today, we take pride in providing biosolids to crop producers in
the midwest. In doing so, we provide an environmentally sound outlet
for the final product of over twenty municipal and industrial wastewater
treatment plants in metropolitan Chicago. Continental Farms, Inc.
also continues to remove and reuse drinking water treatment lime.
We are a full service company providing transportation, application,
and incorporation of biosolids and water treatment lime, as well
as technical, regulatory, and educational information provided by
our own environmental staff. Please view a complete current list
