Expert Compost Teas Made Easy

Compost Tea

Compost Tea’s work wonders in a garden by feeding the micro-biology “bugs” (Biological Under Ground System), in the soil for fast, healthy plant growth. We have been brewing and applying Compost Tea’s on 500k+ acres of Farm Land since 1974. 5000 Gallon batches at a time, we have a good idea on how to increase the micro-biology in the soil and brew a great Compost Tea. More micro-biology equals faster root development, which in return will result in faster plant development. After all, a plant cannot grow if the roots cannot sustain the growth. Lets discuss a few easy Compost Tea Recipe’s, we will be covering a Veg/Grow Compost Tea Recipe as well…

What are the benefits of using organic fertilizers?

There are sooooo many different varieties of fertilizer out there! And there are upsides to most of them. We are pretty partial to the natural varieties, of course, but even synthetics do have benefits. For one thing, usually you have a quicker uptake with synthetics.  Your real difference is your objective. Do you want to increase the nutrients in your soil for a long-lasting improvement overall, or do you want quick uptake?
