PROCESS

How it’s made: from your neighbor’s farm, to our farm, to your garden!

Country Garden Farms works to utilize local resources to transform one man’s garbage into another man’s garden necessity!

Our composting program links horse owners with Alaskan farmers and gardeners who need their valuable compost. Our manure exchange program (read more here), serves customers who need a place to dispose of their waste and also provides a great base product for our compost. Grass clippings, brush trimmings, and other organic materials from around the farm make their way into the compost adding rich nutrients and creates a good recipe for great compost. Every bag of Country Garden Farms compost helps to improve water quality, reduce our dependence on Outside fertilizer for Alaska Grown crops, and prevent the spread of invasive species.

Manure is collected from local horse owners as part of our manure exchange program.
