Farm Dirt Compost
Farm Dirt is a Houston-local, family-owned and -operated compost facility located in the 5th Ward. We focus on creating healthy soil teeming with microbial life. We keep the oxygen content of our piles high using forced aeration so that the beneficial aerobic microorganisms maintain optimal activity levels. This produces an extremely high-quality product with high microbial counts.
Our compost travels no more than 41 miles its entire life cycle from the time it’s a waste product as fruit & veggie scraps and wood chips to the time it’s in a bag on the store shelf, and the whole process takes less than two months start to finish. We have high production on a very small footprint, taking efficient land use to a whole new level. Because of this super-efficiency, we like to refer to our product as ultra-green.
Compost ingredients may include: Apples, Oranges, Bananas, Cantaloupes, Watermelons, Potatoes, Celery, Kale, Lettuce, Sweet Potatoes, Broccoli, Cauliflower, Swiss Chard, Cherries, Tomatoes, Lemons, Limes, Plums, Peaches, Nectarines, Strawberries, Blueberries, Blackberries, Onions, Bell Peppers, Zucchinis, Pineapple, Squash, Rosemary, Sage, Oregano, Basil, Green Onions, Coffee, Grains, Leaves and Wood Chips. Basically the kinds of stuff you’d find in your kitchen, except the leaves and wood chips :-).
We use no animal products in our compost.
