Mountain compost

Who we are

EMC is dedicated to reducing waste and creating high quiality compost.  Using ingredients  sourced from local outlets, we are producing blends that suit the needs of any gardener or small scale farmer in Chaffee County. 


Bulk & bagged compost is now available!

Where we work

We are fortunate to work where we love to live, in the beautiful Arkansas River  Valley.  Our compost enjoys views of 14,000-foot peaks and stays warm in sunny Salida...


Thank you to those who contributed to Elements Mountain Compost in 2014. We collected everything from tree branches, leaves, garden bits

and holiday trees for the piles!

Stay tuned for the final product this spring!
