Our mulch products are made onsite at our farm and made from tree waste brought to the farm by local tree companies and homeowners. Making mulch is really a large sustainable recycling operation. Wood chips, tree limbs, stumps and branches are ground into a triple consistency and composted in piles. It is then ready to spread on your gardens and flower beds to suppress weeds, provide nutrients and retain moisture.
Mushroom soil is a similar process completed at local mushroom farms in Chester county. Mushroom soil typically consists of horse and poultry manure, hay, straw, and corn stalks. It can be used as a mulch but is ideal as a soil amendment which adds all the essential fertilizer elements your vegetable garden needs. Mushroom soil is pure organic matter and therefore will shrink over time. If you are making a raised bed we typically recommend mixing topsoil with your mushroom soil to create a more stable long term soil.
