How to Buy Our
Compost Products

Delivery Range

We deliver within this map region. Different delivery options are available per town. For any delivery outside of this region there is a minimum order of 10 yards. Please consult this map to see the minimum yardage, delivery fee, and if we offer installation of raised bed kits.


Combine Orders with a Friend and Save

Partner with 'in-town neighbor(s)' and save on the delivery fee and qualify for quantity discounts. Save the most by filling up our truck to the max carrying capacity of 8 cubic yards. Please note that each order must be at or above the minimum in your area.

For example, you buy 2 yards of one product, your 'in-town neighbor' buys 2 yards of another product, and another 'in-town neighbor' gets 4 yards of a product. It all adds up to 8 cubic yards you get the '8 yard rate'. If it adds up to 8 yards, you get the 8 yard rate.

Enter the name and email of the people you are partnering with in the Special Instructions on Step 4 "Confirm and Pay" during check out on our Ordering System. During order review we will link orders and apply the discount.
