Our certified for organic use compost is a blend of cow, calf, horse, and chicken manure, animal bedding, bark, leaves, wood chips, and food and crop residuals. We have been formulating and finding the best recipe for our compost in this area for over 12 years.

Recommended use: Soil amendment

Especially useful for top dressing existing perennial beds and enriching vegetable gardens.

Benefits: No pesticides, reduced amount of fertilizer needed, very few weeds compared to raw manures. All compost is 1/2″ minus (this means that all the compost particles are 1/2″ or smaller after screening)

***Sweetens acidic soil and helps light soils hold water or heavy soils with drainage***
