The Processes

All our products go through a meticulous composting and maturation process
to produce the highest quality and nutrient rich composts.

Soil Conditioner

Fertile Mulch

Organic Green Compost


Soil Conditioner

Our soil conditioner consists of horse manure, straw, and a minimal amount of wood shavings, which helps to aerate the compost. The manure is collected daily from stable yards in the local area and brought to our farm where it is processed and turned regularly, allowing oxygen to permeate through. This creates heat, which kills most pathogens and weed seeds.

After roughly a month, the manure is put through a shredder to help break it down, therefore speeding up the process. For the next three months, the manure is continued to be turned and lastly it is screened to 40mm and ready for bagging or distribution.

Fertile Mulch

Our fertile mulch goes through a similar process and consists predominantly of horse manure and wood shavings. The manure is heaped up and turned at regular intervals until it is dark brown in colour, at which time it is ready for bagging or distribution. This process takes approximately six months.

Organic Green Compost

Our organic green compost is composted of green waste from council transfer stations and amenity sites, which is brought to our farm and shredded in to 70mm pieces and put into windrows. The windrows are then monitored daily for temperature, Oxygen, Carbon Dioxide and moisture levels. The windrows are turned on a weekly basis, which helps to mix the compost and most importantly introduces more oxygen in to the windrow.

After 7 to 8 weeks the compost is put through a screening machine, extracting the 30mm product and 10 mm compost fines ready to use.
