Are you looking for organic fertilizer as in alfalfa pellets? If so, I would search for a seed and feed tyoe store. It might be worth giving a call to agri-supply in Garner.

Thanks. I am looking for any all all types of organic fertilizer. The more the better. I just spread 250 pounds of cow poop, as it was put, tonight.

I'm surprised you couldn't find anything, because I found several after doing just a quick meta search.

Is Wake Forest "local" enough? Grow It Organic

Or perhaps you'd prefer Durham: Res Viridis

Or Raleigh: Organics Ltd.

These two aren't quite local, but might make for a nice weekend drive:

Huntersville: Sustainable Scapes

Mooresville: Yard Organics


I hope that helps!

Those are all expensive options. You'd go broke trying to feed your entire lawn with those products. I buy my fertilizer at Southern States Cooperative in Louisburg. $15 for 50 lbs of soybean or cottonseed meal.

I take issue with "The Garden Center" selling Compost Tea. Most of the good bacteria will die within hours of stopping the aeration. I'm not sure how they package their compost tea - if it's done on site immediately before purchase or not.

The only thing I'm having trouble finding is a cheap source of corn gluten meal used as a anti-germinator. It's around $22 for a 30# bag from doityourself.com. That's EXPENSIVE!

I hadn't yet searched. I was busy spreading the cow crap I bought. Thanks for the links. I would love to find some places people have tried and can recommend in Holly Springs, Fuquay, Apex or Cary. Those are closet to me.

BTW - What is a "meta" search?

That's a great offer.

How long has it been composted? Where do you live?
