COMPOST & SOIL BLENDS
PERFECT FOR FARMS, GARDENS, AND LANDSCAPES.
WE STARTED DIRT HUGGER with the goal of creating an organic compost unlike anything that was currently available. We wanted to source feedstocks which would create a biologically-diverse and mature finished product. We are fortunate to live among orchards, vineyards, and breweries where we can source whole fruit, grape pumice, and beer yeast for feedstocks and then reapply compost back into those same farms. The full cycle helps create increased quality, accountability, and community.
Dirt Hugger compost is a dark, rich, Organic Compost made from local whole fruit, wood, brush, spent brewery yeast, and food scraps. We screen compost to less than 3/8” size, and it is perfect for amending the sandy loam or clay soils in the Pacific Northwest. We recommend applying Dirt Hugger compost in a 2-3″ topdress, and/or tilling it 6-8” deep into existing soil. Compost can provide organic content and nutrients, and your local soil will provide the mineral content creating a balanced environment for plant growth. Compost also aids in water retention, pH buffering, and stimulation of microbiology.

Dirt Hugger 50/50 Blend was created for those newly built raised beds for the spring gardener. 50/50 contains Organic Compost blended with a 1/2″ minus screened local soil to create a sandy loam soil structure. The Blend is plant-in ready and recommended for any gardening or landscaping project where tilling the local soil is impossible or undesirable. (Note: the topsoil component of this product is not guaranteed to be weed seed or pathogen free as it has not been through the composting process- which is true of most any topsoil you find).
The 50/50 Blend also offers a simple solution for grass seeding and landscaping on rocky or impenetrable areas. Apply 4 to 6 inches to the surface of your desired lawn area and seed.

The Orchard Blend contains compost with an increased woody fraction, which is thought to benefit fruit tress and plants. In field application, the compost works into soils while the woody component can help serve as a mulching layer. We’ve worked with this for over five growing seasons and have seen promising results in emergence, vigor, resiliency, and fruit size.
