Like Top Chefs, We Know That Quality Ingredients, Blended Perfectly,
Compost can be derived from many different types of materials, including yard trimmings, food scraps, leaves, manure, and post-harvest mushroom compost. In the previous two blogs, we discussed why you should use compost, and why you should use STA Certified Compost. Here, we are going to explain the benefits of using post-harvest mushroom compost from Laurel Valley Soils.
Many types of compost are made using whatever unused products are available at that time, sort of like when your Mom would make soup from all the leftovers at Thanksgiving. Creating Laurel Valley Soils Compost is more like baking your Great Grandmother’s famous, award-winning upside-down carrot, macadamia and bourbon cake. It requires using only the finest ingredients and carefully following the recipe, as there are high expectations on the line!
Because our compost is initially created to grow fresh mushrooms, we follow a strict formula containing only the highest quality, purchased and inspected ingredients including hay, straw, recycled horse bedding, cocoa shells, poultry litter, corn cobs, and gypsum. After the crop of mushrooms is complete, we take back the post-harvest mushroom compost, let it compost down some more, and then upcycle it as premium compost or repurpose it to create enriched topsoil.
