WHY WE LOVE COMPOST

Compost is the heart and soul of organic gardening. You don’t have to be a farmer or an earthworm to reap the benefits of composting.

You can compost your own garden and kitchen waste at home with very little effort. Adding organic matter to your garden will improve the structure, water holding capacity, and aeration of soils containing too much clay or too much sand. Compost is the most recommended source of organic material. It is easy to make, easy to use, and contains a storehouse of nutrients.

The Quan Fa Compost System

The Quan Fa Compost System that we employ in our farming methods have proven to be a reliable source of healthy and delicious food, without synthetic and chemical fertilizers.

Quan Fa Compost System originated from a Japanese technique (Takahama Compost System) using a unique culturing medium to eliminate obnoxious odours of raw materials (mixture of decayed vegetations). This medium subsequently produces a nutrient-rich organic debris; which deters the rate of damage caused by disease infection and insect infestation. The compost is used throughout the farm to condition dead soil back to its arable state, which eventually enhances and stimulates plant growth.

Our innovative farming techniques tunes in harmony with the ecosystem- providing nutrient rich soils from which healthy produces is grown, preventing diseases, and benefiting our health and way of life.

What is inside the compost?

Sawdust, rotten vegetables, and fruit skins, as well as yeast (to raise the temperature to create conducive conditions for decomposition)

These compost piles are left from 3-6 months to enable natural decomposers to do their work. We use machines to occasionally mix and stir them, but we do not add any artificial chemicals in the process.

Over time, they become fine, powdery, non-sticky and odourless natural fertilizers, and are then distributed along the respectively crops, nurturing the soil and stimulating plant growth. With the improvement in soil activity, our vegetables do not require external substances such as synthetic pesticides and chemical fertilizers.
