First Fruit Farm SLO – A Success Story

First Fruit Farm SLO – A Success Story

Here is a little uplifting success story to share. We have received some great feedback from First Fruit Farms,  a non-for-profit institution right here in San Luis Obispo.

First Fruit Farms is an organization that is organically farming and providing fresh fruits and vegetables to people experiencing food insecurity in San Luis Obispo County, California.

They have started applying our KompoGro Organic Compost to their 20 acre farm fields after the 2020 harvesting season and were kind enough to share their experiences with us. And in addition to that, they also brought some delicious carrot cake for the plant operators that was made with some organic carrots grown on their fields.

While it is not exactly an apples-to-apples comparison from year to year because of some annual crop loss due to animal intrusion, changes in crop mix, and soil management strategy, the changes in yield were noteworthy.

First Fruit Farms harvested 17,570 lbs. of nutritious vegetables in 2020 and after applying KompoGro they harvested  23,902 lbs. in 2021. That would be a roughly 36 % increase in crop yield. Pretty impressive!
