I just bought a small farmhouse that had cows,pigs,alpacas and a miniature horse. They had there own sheds and a small barn for the animals. Looking to get rid of the straw that is covering the floors and also a big pile of compost on the side of the property. Near Akron Ohio

Too bad I wasn't closer to Akron... why not compost that material and use it?

If comfortable with 'advertising'.. you could put up a sign free compost, or maybe a Craigslist or other free notice. Some gardener nearby would love the stuff.
i'm pretty OK today, how are you? ;^)

OMG, a Gardener's dream! I agree with Thomas and Sally. If you plan to grow anything on your new farm, use it. You can't get any better stuff — straw, manure, compost, all of it!

If you aren't going to grow anything (but you bought a farm?) then by all means, make it available to gardeners who will value it. Thumbs up
For me, gardening is really just an excuse for playing in the dirt. Admittedly, plants are a satisfying by-product.
