Our Product

We are your Living Soil Experts.

Although SymSoil’s core product looks like commodity compost, the company’s biologically active solid soil amendment is manufactured using a different process than those currently employed by most commercially successful compost facilities in the United States.

 SymSoil’s biologically active solid soil amendment, SymSoil, is essentially solid transport material for cultivated regionally indigenous soil microbes.  These native bacteria and fungi, as well as beneficial nematodes and protozoa, have adapted over time to local climate conditions.    
 
Infusing your produce with life and essence that you can taste and feel the difference.
Good farmers, who take seriously their duties as stewards of Creation and of their land’s inheritors, contribute to the welfare of society in more ways than society usually acknowledges, or even knows. These farmers produce valuable goods, of course; but they also conserve soil, they conserve water, they conserve wildlife, they conserve open space, they conserve scenery.
