According to the Mesothelioma Center, agricultural workers and farmers are exposed to asbestos in farm equipment and building materials. Farmers should know that vermiculite, a mineral that's safe in its pure form, can also pose a risk if asbestos contaminated the vermiculite mine. Asbestos has been found in vermiculite soil mixes and conditioners, and we can provide an alternative. Let us know if you want more information on our natural farming products.
