Update 6/4: Our mail order service remains open for business and we are still taking orders for:

  • Wool Compost for Seeds
  • Wool Compost for Vegetables & Salads
  • Wool Compost for Potting
  • Lakeland Gold
  • Bulb Compost

We have limited our range 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.

    Many, many thanks for great service. I have just received the two bags of compost - best birthday present ever! I have struggled to find anything locally, couldn't access many websites. Thanks to Helen Yemm's article, saw your site mentioned, ordered immediately and now looking forward to starting my tomatoes and peppers in your seed compost.
