Compost is a Nutrient-rich Soil

Compost is a nutrient-rich, biologically active soil amendment made from decomposed organic wastes. The composting process starts when biodegradable materials are combined in a proper mixture and level of moisture.  Bacteria, fungi, and other creatures break down compost feed-stocks into a stable soil-like humus that is rich in nutrients and beneficial microbes.

When the windrows no longer generate heat when turned, and the original materials are no longer recognizable, the finished compost is applied to the soil where farm produce is grown. The compost benefits the farm by feeding the soil food web with nutrients and microbes while also increasing soil water holding capacity and overall soil quality.
