Loudoun Composting is Closing

Updated: Feb 27, 2023

Loudoun Composting, located in Chantilly, VA, has been a great wholesale manufacturer of high-quality compost and leaf mulch products for many years. It's sad that Loudoun Composting is closing its gates, especially at a time when the U.S. needs more fully permitted and quality composting facilities. Loudoun Compost recycled residential yard debris from Fairfax and Loudoun counties, turned it into SoilMate Compost and Karbon Leaf Mulch, and sold it to landscaping supply distributors and contractors.

If you're a current customer of Loudoun Composting looking for a new wholesale manufacturer of certified and local compost (and/or bulk leaf mulch), I hope you’ll consider Freestate Farms. We’re located in Manassas, VA, and sell to distributors / wholesale customers. Below is a little more information about our bulk compost and leaf mulch, and how they relate to Loudoun Composting’s SoilMate Compost and Karbon Leaf Mulch products.

One of Loudoun Composting's most popular products was their SoilMate compost. As a certified compost, it was great for enriching soil and promoting healthy plant growth. At Freestate Farms, we also offer a certified and local compost, called Grow Good Compost. Most of our compost will contain food scraps in it, in addition to the local yard waste that Loudoun Composting used, as this can provide additional macro- and micro-nutrients to garden plants, grass, trees and shrubs. We can, however, create a yard waste compost that does not contain food scraps, if you have a job that has specifications for a (Leaf) Yard Waste Compost. Both of our Tilling and Topdressing Composts are carefully composted using our state-of-the-art facility to create a nutrient-rich soil amendment.

In addition to compost, Loudoun Composting also sold leaf mulch, called Karbon Leaf Mulch. Mulch is an important addition to any garden, as it helps suppress weeds, retain moisture, and regulate soil temperature. At Freestate Farms, we offer a variety of natural mulch products, including our Grow Good Leaf Mulch that, like Loudoun Composting, is made from municipal leaf collection programs. Not only does a leaf mulch provide the traditional benefits of a garden mulch, but it also breaks down more quickly throughout the season to return nutrients to the garden’s soil.

It can be hard to find a new wholesale manufacturer for your landscaping supplies, especially when you've relied on a trusted source like Loudoun Composting in the past. We hope that we can be a reliable source for you as you transition to a new wholesale compost and mulch supplier. Our team is dedicated to top-quality products and customer service to help make your business a success. If you have any questions or need help placing a bulk compost or bulk mulch order, please don't hesitate to contact us. We look forward to serving you and helping your business grow.
