What is Mushroom Compost?

Mushroom compost is made by mushroom growers using organic materials such as hay, straw, corn cobs and hulls, and poultry or horse manure. Additional materials like gypsum, peat moss and lime, may be added.

Spent mushroom substrate is then used as a nutrient rich garden amendment.
It is available Bagged or Bulk.

What is Garden Brew?

Garden Brew is a byproduct of the fermentation industry made from a mixture of brew products combined with selected saw dust in a controlled environment to produce a rich compost.

If you are familiar with the old product ‘Nutri-brew’, this is much the same.

It is available in bulk, only, for pick up in an open truck or trailer or delivery.

Delivery fee additional.

Mulch Calculator
How Many? How Many? Sq. ft. Coverage To:
Yards Bags 1" Deep 2" Deep 3" Deep
1/2 4 1/2 169 79 54
1 9 338 159 108
2 18 675 318 216

  Example: If you want to cover 300 Sq. ft. with mulch and you want it to be 2" deep, you need either 2 yds. of mulch or 18 bags.
1 bag of mulch is 3 Cu. ft. and covers 36 Sq. ft. of bed with a 1" depth of mulch.
1 yd. = 27 Cu. ft. or 9 bags (3 Cu. ft. bags)
1 yd. = 27 Cu. ft. or 13.5 bags (2 Cu. ft. bags)
