Visit our Bailey Vegetables U-Pick garden!  
The Bailey family has been
farming in the Snohomish
River Valley since 1913.   Our
fifth generation family dairy
and crop farm has raised
Holstein cows and grown corn
for dairy feed as well as a
variety of vegetable and seed
crops over the years for local
commercial vegetable, grain,  
and seed processors.  

Bailey Compost began in the
early 1990s as an on farm
composting project. We
started composting our dairy
manure with shredded yard
waste and began using our
compost on our own crops to
cut down our use of
commercial fertilizers.  We
began selling Bailey Compost
to the public in 1995.   We now
have a strong following of
loyal customers.  Many of
them attribute their gorgeous
flower and vegetable gardens
to regular use of our compost.

Our well aged quality compost
is made from shredded yard
waste, which is fully aged,
aerated, composted, and
screened.   It makes an
excellent soil amendment or
topsoil dressing for flower and
vegetable gardens by adding
organic matter and nutrients
to the soil.

Bailey Compost contains a full spectrum of essential plant
nutrients as well as macro and micronutrients often absent
in synthetic fertilizers.  These natural nutrients are released
slowly.  Compost helps sandy soil retain water and
nutrients.  Compost loosens tightly bound particles in clay  
soil so roots can spread, water can drain, and air can

Bailey Compost greatly increases soil fertility resulting in
noticeable plant growth and robust health.  Compost also
feeds diverse life in the soil.  These beneficial bacteria,
fungi, insects, and worms also support healthy plant

Besides making your soil naturally healthier, adding

Customer Testimonial:

"After we top dressed this bed with Bailey
Compost, we direct seeded kale.  Now our
kale is so big it's scary.  Not only did Bailey
Compost radically improve our kale output, but
also our flower beds.  One particular example
is a hardy fuchsia shrub we purchased at a
season's end sale.   The fuchsia never got off
to a good start and limped along for two years
with only pale, stunted leaves and little actual
growth, until we transplanted it to a bed that
was amended with Bailey Compost.  The
improvement in strong, lush growth, leaf size
and number of blossoms is astonishing.  This
stuff is magic."
Elizabeth is a little wary of how big our cows are!

Compost can help save our salmon and our whales!  Check out this video showing how beneficial
compost can be in cleaning stormwater. You can help in a small way by using compost yourself and in a
big way by encouraging our policymakers to require stormwater filtration systems like the compost/sand
one demonstrated in this video....
