Compost is an essential component of an organic farming system. The myriad benefits include improving moisture retention ability of the soil, as well as drainage, providing beneficial microbes, micronutrients, and making major nutrients more available to plants. As well as improving the soil, the composting process is an ecologically sound and beneficial way to deal with crop residue and other discarded farm supplies such as used potting soil and dead plants.
Where We Source
We source our organic compost from the Maine-based company We Compost It! The compost is approved by the Maine Organic Farmers and Garden Association for use on organic soils.
