Compost

We have several types of organic compost. We only use the best ingredients for our Organic Compost.

These are the versions we use on our own Organic Farm and are happy to make it available to our Neighbors on The Big Island!

Our compost consist of an aged mixture of horse manure, composted goat droppings, untreated wood shavings and untreated hardwood sawdust.

These ingredients are turned frequently and aged for at least 6 months to 8 months.

We spray the compost pile with EM1 as well as an Organic N-P-K fertilizer with a 7-7-7 ratio.

This gives us a vital compost with beneficial bacteria and adequate amounts of Organic Nitrogen, Phosphorus and Potassium. This is an unusual organic combination that is normally not attainable on The Big Island.

Price: $250 per cubic yard

This has the same ingredients as Grade One and we also add in green waste and let it compost until we have a nice organic mixture that works well in your garden, greenhouse or orchard. We also use EM1 that is sprayed regularly as we turn our ingredients

Price: $275 per cubic yard

We use a combination of indigenous hardwood sawdust and horse and goat manure that is consistently sprayed with our Organic N-P-K 7-7-7 spray, Hawaiian Bokashi Inoculant, HVO1 Beneficial Microbial Spray, and aged over six months to break down the hardwood sawdust.

Price: $275 Per Cubic Yard

Mixed With Top Soil/Black Cinder/ Compost Is $139 A Cubic Yard

A combination of untreated hardwood sawdust, green waste, sprayed EM1 and with our 7*7*7 N-P-K organic nutrient spray. Turned and aged and tested to make sure the N-P-K ratio is balanced.

We originally started out making our own Jadam-style indigenous micro-organisms but found EM1 to be vastly superior. Natural farmers use it because of the beneficial effects both on the soil and the crops. And since I always want the best, we now use it as our exclusive beneficial micro-organisms. EM1 has a tremendous amount of microbes, far more than the Indigenous micro-organisms (IMO). We are now manufacturing Hawaiian Bokashi Inoculant™ which is the Japanese version of an inoculant that is a granular version with a much longer shelf life. We add this to our HVO Compost to increase the number of microbes and microorganisms to create a Super Healthy Soil! We now have this available for Gardeners and Farmers

A little history about EM1

But first a little story about a farmer I met at a local farmer’s market: He told me that his soil needs to be “injected with a stream of a 180-degree heated blast of steam to keep the bad micro-organisms in check”. But what he really needed was a balanced ecosystem. Just like the human gut, if your bacteria is kept balanced, your garden will produce healthy produce.

What is EM?

EM1 has developed about 30 years ago in Japan. It is now a Worldwide technology with a huge following. EM1 is a superior composition of an assorted group of highly effective yeast, fungi, and bacteria, (more than 80 strains) which has been Rigorously tested and determined to be safe for animals and humans. One of the highlights of EM1 is that it is a diverse and balanced combination of productive microbes, and this gives it a multitude of healthy applications.

EM1 is used in many agricultural systems and has multiple environmental applications.

We customize all our Compost Mixes and can add any ration of the following:

• Organic Fertilizer – custom made for us with a balance of effective ingredients:

35% Organic Biochar

• 20% organic Silicon Minerals

• 20% organic Cow Manure

• 15% Organic Coffee Ground

• 10% Dolomite

Black Lava Cinder – mined locally from an Ancient Lava Cone, this soil amendment helps build healthy soil.

How Using Lava Rock for Soil Additive Can Seriously Improve Plant Drainage

Granulated, black lava cinder provides garden growers a helpful natural supplement to their soil components. Black Lava Cinder is an important component and a powerful soil additive, vitalizing substrate component, and a very reliable filter and drainage medium.

Black(not red) Lava Cinder breaks up the garden and orchard soil, is breathable and a great place for microorganisms to propagate. As decomposing black lava cinder material reacts with plant material and soil microorganisms, the rock material releases elements like magnesium , calcium, and iron.

Red Wigglers

If we’re talking about which worms are best to add directly to vegetable garden soil, Red Wigglers are definitely the best worms. They burrow their way through the soil, aerating it and increasing water penetration. These worms are like little secret soil specialists!

We are blessed with rich soil and our Ag land was a cattle

ranch, so we have 50 years of cow and pig manure mixed with healthy soil that is

over 10 feet in depth. Mix this in with our Compost, Black Lava Cinder

and our Organic Fertilizer and you have a great media to grow in.

We can Custom Mix any of the above beneficial garden additives, so email us and let us know what

you want and how many yards. We can deliver within a 55-mile radius of Hilo
