We start with a blend of wood chips and food scraps to get the right carbon/nitrogen ratio.  Then, we pile the material into large aerated static piles.  The material is kept above 140F for atleast 72-hours straight during the compost process to kill pathogens and weed seeds.  After 90+ days of composting and curing, the compost is screened and ready for sale.

Worm Castings (Worm Poop)

Worm Castings are one of the best natural materials on the planet for growing plants.  It's the platinum of soil amendments.  And just like hard working miners toiling for Platinum, we work really long and hard to make some great worm castings.


It starts outdoors in our aerated static pile compost piles.  After 3-4 weeks of composting, we dig into those piles and pull out some partially composted material for our worm bins.  Our piles have been at 140F for at least 72-hours straight, killing any pathogens or weed seeds in the material.


The material then spends a couple of months in our worm bins where thousands of worms work their magic.  Finally, we harvest, screen, and bag the material for your use.

Worm Castings - $14.00/25lb bag, $300/yard 

These worm castings are an amazing soil amendment.  It can be mixed with topsoil and used as a potting mix.  It can be soaked in water and make compost tea which can then be applied as a liquid fertilizer.  Use it in your garden, use it indoors, or add it to your flowers.


We are lucky to have a lot of worms and therefore a lot of worm poop.  We screen the worm castings to 1/4".

Compost Tea Bag - $5

Compost Tea is awesome stuff.  Our compost tea bag is filled with our worm castings.  Since the material has been through a pathogen killing process, it is safe to apply directly to vegetable and fruit plants.  It can be sprayed directly onto plants leaves or poured at the base of the plant.  There aren't many substances that can do that!


Compost tea packs a punch of beneficial microbes and nutrients that help plants grow and fight some diseases.


Each tea bag makes 5 gallons of compost tea.  It also comes with directions on how to brew up your tea and use it on your plants.

Burlap Coffee Bags - $1 each

We know, its kind of a random thing for a compost operation to have.  But, we work with a coffee roaster who gets coffee delivered in these bags - so we though we should try to find a home for them.  They are made from burlap and are 27" x 38".  If you want to use them at home, in the garden, or for a cool craft project then grab a few.
