The reason for the superiority of OurCompost™ is simple: What goes in comes out! Only the best, most pure and appropriate organics go into the compost-castings mix that turns into our very own brand of vermicompost.
The nitrogen-rich ingredients of our worms’ diet include fruits, vegetables and pre-composted manure. No meat or dairy are included. Typical contents are organic vegetable and fruit peelings, oak leaves, local coffee grounds, farm-raised eggshells, and organic grains. In addition, NewSoil partners with two local farms to recycle produce scraps and horse manure. Horse manure is pre-composted (via hot compost windrows) for at least 3 months prior to feeding to our worms. This ensures a stable and disease-free blend of quality compost feed. Once fed to the worms, they process it to create an even richer mix of castings and compost which is then sorted and sifted to form a consistent, stable and high-quality mix of fertilizer for your planting needs.
