who is rust belt riders?
rust belt riders is our parent company that brought our products to life. they manage food waste from businesses across Northeast Ohio and it is from that food waste that we derive the main ingredient in all our products: compost
are your products organic?
our products are produced to meet and exceed organic standards. our products are not, however, OMRI certified as we have a fundamental disagreement about their registration process.
what are you NPK levels?
our products are produced with believe that biology, not chemistry, is the source of soil health and performance. NPK levels are a byproduct of post-WWII America when surplus military chemicals were in massive supply. the view then & as it all-too-often is now, that chemistry can outsmart & outperform mother nature. we disagree with this, which is why we do not test our soils NPK levels. we do, however, perform a biological assessment of each and every batch of soil we produce.
what is the soil food web?
the soil food web is the lens through which we evaluate and think about soil health. the soil food web is the community of organisms living all or part of their lives in the soil. It describes a complex living system in the soil and how it interacts with the environment, plants, and animals. food webs describe the transfer of energy between species in an ecosystem.
