Made from quality local food waste. We export over 50 tons of food waste annually from the greater Grand Rapids area. This compostable waste is transported weekly to a field south of town where it is combined with leaves, chemical free hay and clean wood mulch.
It composts for 6-12 months in piles until it becomes hospitable to worms. Red worms remain in the piles for an additional 6-12 months. The worms continue to break down the food waste and inoculate the compost in the process. Once it has reached a final stage, the compost is black crumbly, and finely textured. At that point it is pulled out in small batches to be mixed up and processed for final finishing. Once finished, it is screened and the remaining chunks are returned to new piles for another round. The final product is nutrient dense and packed full of microorganisms.
