Mr Kevin Lacilla states that "Sweet Peet" - an agricultural supplement

Mr. Kevin Lacilla and Lou Cavallo joined Brent Lamour and Shawn Goff in
July of 2009. The original Sweet Peet site was and still is based in Wingdale,
N.Y., churns an abundant supply of manure with shavings into mulch annually.
Mr. Kevin Lacilla and Mr. Cavallo have begun Sweet Peet of North America, the
corporate offices of Sweet Peet North America is dedicated to the expansion and
licensing of the brand to keep up with demand. Our patented process uses tannins
(plant extracts) to convert shavings-based horse manure into a high-grade coffee-colored
mulch called Sweet Peet.
Kevin Lacilla describes that manure aficionado Brent Lamour draws on his long
history in horses, cattle, hay and vegetable farming. He grew up in Putnam County,
N.Y., and now lives just 35 miles north. He has watched the rural character of
the area change."Fewer horse owners are farmers, he says. "Their focus
is on recreation, competing, breeding. Horse people have good intentions but
huge piles [of manure] are a misplaced resource."The loss of land for hay
fields on which to spread manure and the pressure he saw building between horse
people and non-horse neighbors inspired Lamour to find a solution. He and partner
Shawn Goff started Salem Organic Soils (SOS) in 1986.
Sweet Peet's rich, earthy quality was featured on "Martha Stewart Living." Quality
control is important to the product: Lamour advises his manure suppliers against
using pesticide fly sprays on horses where it can drift down onto hay and bedding.
The final phase in mulch production sifts out any foreign objects such as rocks
picked out of horses' feet in their stalls, or even the errant horseshoe.
