Plant-based Premium Compost
Our plant-based compost consists of green debris from our sustainable farm and Richmond-area residential properties. Debris is mixed with straw, wood chips/sawdust and dry leaves.
Ingredients are mixed and maintained on our local farm by experienced compostiers. Our piles are closely monitored and aerated regularly. From start to cure, compost requires approximately 8-12 months to finish.
Available by the cubic yard or cubic foot in course screen (25mm) texture. See our Delivery Area.
Note: Bulk compost sold out for the season! Available in 1 cubic foot sacks, delivery available. Contact us for additional info.
Mix into soil to add microbes, improve soil structure and encourage root growth. Also works well as a top dressing for moisture retention in new or existing gardens. Its neutral pH and low nitrogen content ensures it will never burn.
Leaf Mold Compost
Our leaf mold is comprised only of leaves collected from local residential properties.
Leaves are left to break down naturally using fungal decomposers, oxygen, water, and time. Leaf mold requires approximately 24 months to finish.
Available by the cubic foot or cubic yard. Due to its relatively long finishing time, availability is typically limited. Please contact us for availability or to pre-order. See our Delivery Area.
Leaf mold is pH neutral and low in N-P-K. Its primary benefit is adding fungal microbes to soil while helping to improve soil structure & water retention in garden beds.
Chicken Manure Compost
Chicken manure compost contains manure from our free ranging chicken flocks. Offsite manure is not accepted.
Chicken manure is collected with straw bedding and is mixed with sawdust, wood shavings or wood chips at a rate of 2 to 1. Chicken manure compost requires approximately 6-9 months to finish.
Available by the cubic foot or in 2 qt resealable bags. Contact us for availability. See our Delivery Area.
Composted chicken manure has no odor. It is relatively high in nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium and works well as a fertilizer for boxwood and evergreens.
