The Finest Fertilizer in Northern California
Nestled in the hills above Potter Valley in Mendocino County lies the Cold Creek Compost facility. Established in 1995 as the first fully permitted compost facility between San Francisco and the Oregon border, the Cold Creek facility is quite unlike most composting operations. Since inception Cold Creek has been committed to developing and producing high quality, nutrient rich soil amendments. Cold Creek Compost was a pioneer in what is now considered Sustainable Materials Management and is committed to producing an organic fertilizer superior to traditional chemical fertilizers.
