Compost for sale?
We are a family farm/greenhouse located in southern Maine that became involved in composting to help improve our soil health and reduce our chemical fertilizer use. We started to get requests for compost from our greenhouse customers, so we purchased a screen and bagger and started selling our product we named Barnyard Blend. After delivering compost to a local resort for their perennial gardens, they approached us to ask if we would be interested in composting their food waste. We designed and built a “toter tipper” to attach to one of our dump trucks and a new venture was born. We now collect food waste from several local schools and businesses as well as agricultural residuals from over 60 local farms and stables. We handle all parts of the process ourselves from meeting with clients to set up a food waste recycling program to hauling and composting the material ourselves. The ground that we use to windrow our compost on is cropped to utilize any excess nutrients that may be left.
Our products are sold at our greenhouse in bags or bulk, wholesale and retail, with delivery available. Barnyard Blend is available at local garden centers.
