The Original DAIRY DOO®

-CAN CERTIFY ORGANIC-

DAIRY DOO is our signature compost- a powerhouse in improving soil health. The added biology and carbon helps plants fully utilize existing nutrients or added fertilizers, giving you the biggest bang for your buck on all the products you use! DAIRY DOO is not like the compost created in backyards or traditional compost sites.  It has a specific recipe, is closely monitored, and is thermophilic which eliminates all weed seeds and pathogens.  This high-quality product binds sandy soils AND loosens clay while releasing nutrients for plant availability. This compost is available in semi-load quantities.   

Recommended Rate of Application: 1 yard per acre

Poultry Compost

-CAN CERTIFY ORGANIC-

Poultry Compost is derived from Layer Manure, but composted to meet any food safety standards!  Laying hens have a fixed diet, making the manure, and our resulting compost, more consistent.  This compost provides organic matter, beneficial biology, and carbon to the soil. 

Recommended Rate of Application: 1 yard-1 ton per acre

K2 Blend

-CAN CERTIFY ORGANIC-

This blend is great for building soil health in grounds that have been underperforming.  It increases the diversity of soil bacteria while activating microbes already present on your farm.  The large addition of 600 lbs. of gypsum per ton also increases calcium and sulfur levels in the soil.

Recommended Rate of Application: 1-2 ton per acre

Layer Ash Blend

-CAN CERTIFY ORGANIC-

This is a custom mix that is based around Layer Manure. It takes the best of the Layer Manure world and combines it with DAIRY DOO Compost and wood ash. This blend adds microbiological activity, calcium, silica, and carbon to the soil while also releasing locked up nutrients.  This increases water-holding capacity.

Mix consists of: Layer Manure | DAIRY DOO | Sili-K

Recommended Rate of Application: 1-2 ton per acre

$60/ton FOB Sears, MI

Layer Ash Blend With Gypsum

-CAN CERTIFY ORGANIC-

This mix has all of the benefits of our Layer Ash Blend, but with gypsum to provide additional calcium and sulfur.  The organic matter of Layer Ash Blend with Gypsum will bind your sandy soils, break up compacted soils, and improve the nutrient holding capacity while preventing leaching. When the compost causes this blend to heat, the layer manure and gypsum react creating an ammonium sulfate-like product, giving you a quicker release.

Mix consists of: Layer Manure | DAIRY DOO | Gypsum | Sili-K

Recommended Rate of Application: 1-2 ton per acre
