NMF’s Fish Compost contains soil nutrients and micronutrients as well as enzymes that boost healthy plants.  Oly Mountain Fish Compost is available in bags from Scott McLendon’s  Hardware in Port Orchard and Belfair.  Oly Mountain Organic Compost is produced from municipal yard trimmings and natural wood products from the co-located log processing company.  Both are good sources of slow release nutrients and organic matter for improving garden and landscape soils.  North Mason Fiber Company is permitted to compost up to 80,000 tons per year of yard waste, food waste, fish, and wood wastes.  Please visit their website at: www.northmasonfiber.com



Bailey Compost is part of Bailand Farms, Inc, a 4th generation family farm in the Snohomish River valley. 

Don and Barb Bailey operate their Aerated Static Pile composting operation on part of their 450-acre family farmland.  They have been commercially composting and certified by the Snohomish Health District since 1996.  Recently, Bailey Compost was listed as an Organic Soil Amendment by the WSDA on their Brand Name Materials list for Organic Food Production.



Don and Barb make their compost from aged dairy manure mixed with shredded yard waste which is then aerated, composted, screened and fully aged.  The finished compost contains a full spectrum of essential plant nutrients as well as macro and micronutrients often absent in synthetic fertilizers.  These natural nutrients are released slowly. 



Bailey Compost greatly increases soil fertility resulting in noticeable plant growth and robust health.  Compost also feeds the diverse life in the soil. These beneficial bacteria, fungi, insects, and worms also support healthy plant growth. Bailey Compost is an excellent soil amendment, adding organic matter and nutrients to the soil.  It is a favorite with many local garden clubs and top quality landscapers.  Please visit their website at: www.baileycompost.com
