Certified Organic Fresh Mushroom Compost (COFMC) is generated exclusively from certified organic mushroom farms. It comes with documentation and is approved to be reused for other certified organic farming operations. COFMC is basically the same product as our Fresh Mushroom Compost (FMC), which is Mushroom Compost that has just been removed from the indoor growing beds at a mushroom farm after the mushrooms are harvested. COFMC retains all of its valuable fertility, biologic and organic matter content. The differences between COFMC and standard FMC is the regulated fertility, pest, and fungal management programs the mushroom farmers use or don’t use during the cultivation of the mushrooms. With an average one week lead-time COFMC is available fresh on an order by order basis. COFMC is unscreened and is light enough to be efficiently hauled in larger loads on tractor trailers. It’s highest value use is in certified organic growing operations or for anyone who wants to manage their landscape organically.
