Compost and Compost Blends

PLEASE NOTE - OUR COMPOST LOOKS DIFFERENT THAN WHAT YOU TYPICALLY BUY AT THE STORE.  

 

If you are looking for a homogenous powder-like consistency to your compost, we recommend buying an industrial compost like Scotts Miracle-Gro or Leafgro.  Our compost is on the chunkier side and innoculted with fungus.  So, while we are proud of what makes us different, we want to make sure folks know what they are getting when you order from us.  You can check out our FAQs page for more info about our compost and the process

Organic Compost - Bulk - $35/cubic yard

Our compost is available in bulk quantities (loose).  It is screened to 1/2".  Available by the yard for pick-up in Aberdeen or it can be delivered throughout the Baltimore and DC Metro Areas.

 

As noted elsewhere on the website, our compost is chunkier than the industrial composts sold elsewhere in the region.  We're proud to have chunky compost and think there are benefits to that which you can read about on our FAQ page

 

Note that Bulk Compost is not bagged, it is loose.  So, for delivery please have a space in mind for us to dump the compost when the driver arrives.

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 is mixed with Wawa Coffee Grounds and 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 - $5.00/4quart bag, $14.00/20lb bag

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".

Arbor Chips - $19 per cubic yard

These wood chips are from local tree companies that drop-off at our compost site on a daily basis.  The chips are larger then typical mulch and are free of dyes.

 

There can be sticks, sawdust, and leaf material mixed in as well (we don't screen or sort the material)

 

This is great as a groundcover, for aisles in gardens, filler at the bottom of raised beds, or anything else you can think of in the yard and garden.  Available for pickup in Aberdeen or we can deliver

Non-Compost Items

Over the years, we have come across opportunities to keep some non-compost items out of the landfill.  The items below are great for use around the garden, or maybe you can find other uses for them.

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.

55 Gallon Plastic Drums

Food Grade Barrels - They used to hold coffee flavoring (French Vanilla or Hazelnut). You would need to wash them out in order to get rid of the nice scent. We have blue drums available right now. There are two 2" screw caps on top. $25 each
