MARSTON, Md. (AP) -- 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.

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.
