checkingCompostRichardHudakHudak Farm’s Own Quality Compost & Planting Mix

Hudak Farm now produces our own nutrient-rich compost , in collaboration with the Close the Loop St. Albans community composting project and the Northwest Vermont Solid Waste District (NWSWD). Prepared carefully, turned often and field tested, our dark, fluffy compost and planting mixes will add valuable nutrients and texture to your soil and improve your garden success. We also offer a compost-rich planting mix for gardens, raised beds and containers.

Made right here in St. Albans, Vermont, our compost recipe was designed and tested to produce nutrient-rich compost without contaminants. By carefully processing food waste and other organic materials from Franklin County schools and other sources, we help “Close the Loop” by creating valuable soil amendments from materials that used to go to the landfill.

Learn more about our composting operation here (coming soon!).
