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.
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.
