Berries Travels: Living Earth Bakery

Living Earth Bakery is a gluten-free bakery, located on SW Jefferson Ave.

Can't have Amazing Organic Berries Without Compost!

Can't have Amazing Organic Berries Without Compost!
Every year we make our own compost right here on the farm. We couldn't find a reliable source of consistent compost, so we make our own, with our own special recipe. We gather compost feed stocks from our local area, and layer them carefully. We turn it, and let it cook for 12 to 14 weeks, then it goes into a curing pile for 1 year. We then spread it on our blueberry plants, as a food source, and sell it to other local blueberry growers. This special formula results in berries that are amazing nutritious, delicious, and have a wonderful texture too. In small quantities our compost is available to the public for purchase, $50 dollars a yard by appointment.
