Compost is a vital part of getting our soil ready for the growing season.  It adds some much-needed  
organic matter to our sandy soils. 
The CSA field and the rest of the farm are getting a good helping of compost this spring. Since the CSA field is organic, we rely heavily on the compost for nutrients. Here, we use a rate of 5 tons/Acre. On other areas of the farm the rate is around 3 tons/Acre.

 My farm guy looks pretty good up on that tractor doesn't he?
  Compost is wonderful soil amendment along with a not-so-wonderful smell.  It only lasts a few days.  I can deal with it.
