Dalefoot is remaining open for online and telephone compost sales as normal. We have put protocols in place to protect our staff so they can fulfil online compost orders and organise safe deliveries.
We will obviously remain vigilant and follow all guidelines set by Public Health England. Any developments will be posted on this page and on social media. 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.
