Update: Our mail order service continues to be open for business. Compost for your gardens can be ordered via our website and delivered safely by our courier service. Our small team is working really hard and getting orders out as quickly as it can, so please bear with us. Give instructions when you order for a safe place to drop-off and there’s no need to sign.
We had anticipated changes such as this and have put in place safe working practices for all our staff, including home working. We will continue to monitor the situation.
We only use 100% natural ingredients from the fells surrounding our farm in the Lake District.
Potash rich bracken forms the base for all our composts. We blend herdwick Sheep's wool into all our Wool Composts for improved water retention and slow release nitrogen.
Our composts are approved for ORGANIC growing, are completely PEAT FREE and are not made from green waste.
