Update 6/4: Our mail order service remains open for business. We have limited our range to the above products to ensure our bagging line is able to cope with the current extra demand. We will review the situation later this month and hopefully be in a position to relist Wool Compost for Tomatoes and Wool Compost Double Strength. Deliveries in some areas of the UK are taking longer than normal as courier services are stretched.
Our small team is working really hard to get orders out as quickly as it can, so please bear with us.
Compost for your gardens can be ordered via our website and delivered safely by our courier service. Give instructions when you order for a safe place to drop-off and there’s no need to sign.
We have put in place safe working practices for all our staff, including home working. We will continue to monitor the situation.
Our farm is currently closed to visitors.
Old gardening recipes to help you garden organically, in balance with nature.
Our Soil Association-approved composts are all made on our small hill farm in the Lake District. The ideas for our composts come from old gardening books - from where many good ideas have been forgotten.
Made from renewable and natural ingredients Dalefoot Composts are ideal for growing organically.
Sheep's wool sheared each year from our flock and our neighbours - provides an alternative source of income to local hill farmers. Bracken is harvested from the fells of the Lake District, on rotation, thus improving the habitat for ground nesting birds and butterflies - in particular the High Brown Fritillary.
Nature knows best!
We want to provide our customers with the best products available and as the old saying goes “Nature knows best”. That’s why all of the sheep’s wool and all of our composts are 100% natural, to ensure healthy plants and vegetables for you and your family to enjoy. Our complete range is also approved by the Soil Association for organic growing.
We now have a range of environmental products that offer our customers strongly sustainable choices and real alternatives to peat.
