About Our Compost
Compost is a natural way to help increase organic matter in your soil, improve water retention, soil structure and increase the microbial population. In addition, compost will provide a steady source of fertility as opposed to the shot-in-the-arm high then crash that you get with synthetic fertilizers. If you’re just starting out the need for compost is even more critical since soil in the city is often very poor quality.
Our compost is made from organic materials collected from households and business throughout Buffalo and it’s surrounding suburbs. This organic material is mostly food waste and is mixed with horse bedding (manure, straw, hay) and woodchips. When these sources are mixed properly they decompose at a rapid rate and after a curing period it transforms into nutrient rich fertilizer for your farm or garden.
Please note: We are a small, local composting operation. As of yet we have not had the resources to purchase a commercial compost screener, nor have we received any outside source of funding to purchase one. What this means for you is that our compost may have some rocks, sticks or other debris that would normally be screened out.
