who is terra firma compost?
We are a family owned and operated chicken farm, residential landscaping company, food waste collector, and compost crafter. Terra Firma has been serving Richmond, Virginia for over twenty years.
We've been composting yard waste since the early aughts. Our composting site is within a secure gated area, and has been inspected by the Virginia DEQ (Department of Environmental Quality). We specialize in plant-based compost from our own landscaping operations, guaranteeing that pesticides, herbicides, and other chemicals are never a part of our recipe.
Our indoor worm facility is a bustling hub of our operation. We've created a streamlined system of bins which are tailored to our unique sustainable process. We raise hundreds of thousands of worms in dozens of custom-built beds. We use a custom-designed lower vibration screener to keep the screening process low-stress for our wigglers.
Proof is in the Produce
The value of castings is evident on our farm! We use worm castings and compost regularly in our house-made soil mix. Our worm tea is liberally sprayed on flowering and fruiting plants for maximum protection from pests and disease. We rely on our compost and worm castings to produce the biggest, healthiest yields in own gardens. We think they'll be just as valuable in yours!
