A Short Summary of Humified Compost and Our Products...What's The Difference?


First of all, anyone can make compost and we encourage people to have their own home compost or vermicomposting bin!

The trouble that people often run into with home composting is anaerobic, or cool compost and that it can take a very long time to make and it is very difficult to get it to a high enough temperature to be able to break down all of the seeds, weeds and pathogens.

This type of compost is probably safe to use on your lawn or maybe even a flower bed, but we do not recommend using it in a garden or making a compost tea with it to spray on your plants.


To make an aerobic, or hot compost, you have to have very large piles and turn them regularly, like you can at a commercial facility with a wind row turner.

It normally takes about 6 weeks to make a good compost in this type of facility, with no seeds, weeds or pathogens. Everything should be fully broken down and safe to use in your garden.

You will probably have to continue to use this compost year after year. Although the compost is nutrient rich and will feed your plants, it will eventually leach through your soil within a few years.


Humified Compost is also made in a commercial facility, but it takes about 6-8 weeks longer to turn it into a humified compost, usually at least 3 months total. It also requires the addition of many other ingredients, including multiple carbon sources and manure sources and billions of families of Microorganisms to process and stabilize all of the different nutrients.


Humus can hold twice its weight in water, and Humus levels in the soil is the number one factor for determining a crops profitability!


Humus is the soil glue that holds everything else in the soil and continues to build it for up to 60 years!. Our humified compost has 3 main components…


First, the Humus crumb. With both Negative and positively charged components that stick together. Because of the negative and positive charges, they are able to attract and hold all of the other raw elements to it.


Secondly, because these elements and nutrients are fully processed and broken down, they are readily available to be absorbed by plant roots, and are actually held in the soil because of the Humus bond, and thus available when the plant actually needs it.


Finally, and probably most importantly, Humified compost is packed full of billions of different beneficial microorganisms, and fungi! These microbes help to make Humus and ACTIVE SOIL CARBON! Meaning, it’s alive! Not only can they store even more carbon in the soil by breaking apart CO2 and storing the carbon, but they have a symbiotic relationship with the plants! Communicating with them by exchanging carbon sugars for other nutrients the microbes find for the plant in the soil.

These Microbes are particularly beneficial when used in a Compost Tea! The majority of Microbes are dormant after the compost has been processed, but are brought to life again through the brewing of compost tea!


Of course, we have our own secret recipe that we have developed over the years, but the humus brewed with additional plant nutrients, carbon sugars, verma compost and other beneficial organic ingredients creates a perfect recipe to help heal almost any plant.


We recommend that people spray the tea on both the tops and underneath the leaves of the plant on a cool day. This allows the microbes to go in through the gas exchange poors of the plant and begin to heal it from the inside out.


The microbes can travel down to the root hairs of the plant, expanding their surface area and ability to absorb water and nutrients.


A healthy plant and soil is going to deter the majority of insects. Especially the clean up crew insects that eat unhealthy plants. Instead these insects will focus on eating the sall and plentiful weed seeds in the soil. This drastically reduces any need for harmful herbicides and pesticides by working with nature’s smallest animals!


If you are looking to take your soil building to the next level because you either have sandy soil, low carbon content, live next to water, or are trying to absorb and break down toxins, we highly recommend trying our Millennium Compost


Millennium Compost is 90% Humified Compost and 10% Biochar. Where Humus is an active soil carbon, Biochar is a stable soil carbon that can maintain carbon levels in your soil for upto 1000 years!


Biochar is a very high quality charcoal, made by pyrolisising hardwoods: burning off all of the other gases and nutrients in an oxygen controlled environment. This leaves vast caverns of crystalized carbon structure throughout every piece of Biochar!


These caverns provide tunnels for the microbes to live in, hibernate in and even store nutrients. The carbon structure attracts and holds all kinds of nutrients that would normally leach out of the soil. It can hold 10X its weight in water, and Millennium Compost can hold 3X-4X it’s weight in water.


Biochar is excellent at absorbing toxins and the microbes can help to break down many toxins! There are even studies showing its ability to absorb radiation from power plant meltdowns which prevents the radiation from being absorbed by plants!


We are learning about these benefits more and more every day!


We did do a study last year to test the difference between the Humified Compost and the Millennium Compost: In the spring of 2019, we measured the Soil Carbon levels from a local farmer. He had used a little bit of regular compost every year, but it usually depleted every year.


Before we did anything, the total carbon levels in the soil were at 3%. In one section of the garden we added Humified Compost and in another section we added Millennium Compost.


In the fall of 2019, we measured the results. The total carbon levels in the section with humified compost were raised up to 7% by the fall! While the total carbon levels in the section with Millenium Compost were brought up to 14%!


We work with multiple soil scientists, and they have all agreed that if you are trying to detox a soil, or have sandy soil and need to increase nutrient retention, a Millennium Compost is the best option for building multiple inches and feet of carbon rich soil!

The key to change

We know that the key to healthy plants, people and water all starts with building healthy soil, and it’s our goal to help local farmers, gardeners, and land and water lovers do just that!
