What is Nannyberries™ Compost?
Nannyberries gourmet compost is a beautiful, dark, rich soil amendment that can be used directly in any gardening application. During the heating process, it is temped and turned every 5 to 7 days, insuring even killing of weed seeds and pathogens. The pH of the final product is neutral, around 7, and our product is Solvita tested, averaging a 6.5 to 7 rating for maturity. (Scale range is 1-8, container mix maturity is 6-7.)

Building Better Soil with Nannyberries™
Used in raised beds or incorporated in your garden plot, Nannyberries is an excellent way to add organic matter each year to your soil. Many gardeners and landscapers use it to bed their plants and ornamentals. During periods of drought, folks are surprised to see how the addition of compost helps to retain moisture. They frequently comment that they were amazed to dig down and find a moist root system when the surface and surround area looked so dry.
How to Purchase Nannyberries™
Nannyberries is available for pickup at our farm April through November. Please call to schedule an appointment.
The price is $50.00 per yard.
We can load your truck or you can bring containers to fill. Depending on the length of the bed, a standard pickup truck can hold 2 to 2.5 yards. A small pickup will hold 1.5 to 2 yards. If you have a trailer, measure the capacity in cubic feet and divide by 27 (cu. feet in a yard). A 5-gallon bucket will hold slightly more than 1 cubic foot.
If you need a large amount, check with local contractors who can pick up and deliver a dump load for you.
Compost can weight +/- 1200 lbs per yard, depending on the moisture content, so remember to check tire pressure before loading up.
