VP of Sales and Operations

San Pasqual Valley Soils is currently one of only six permitted composting facilities in San Diego County, occupying 13 acres in the City of San Diego’s San Pasqual Valley Agricultural preserve. Opened in 2007, the facility is permitted to receive over 75,000 cubic yards of clean, source separated yard trimmings and cow manure a year. Permitting took a lot of time and money, but sets us apart from other operations without regulatory oversight, and ensures our process meets the highest industry standards.

Our focus has always been on creating the best finished products, and we don’t follow a “waste management” model, but rather one more similar to a high-end furniture maker or gourmet restaurant. We start with good materials or ingredients (a.k.a. “feedstocks”) and use them to create high quality soil amendments and mulches. In addition to accepting landscape trimmings, we support the family-owned Frank Konyn Dairy – one of the last remaining dairies in San Diego County – and are a key component of their sustainability efforts.

San Pasqual Valley Soil’s Valley’s Best Compost is approved for use in organic agriculture, and adheres to the strict standards of OMRI and the National Organic Program. San Diego County is home to more organic farms than any other county in the country, and lots of these organic growers trust their crops to the quality and value of our Valley’s Best Compost.

Our mission is to create the best products and help customers improve their soils, grow better food, and create healthier, more lush gardens and landscapes.

We welcome you to call or stop by San Pasqual Valley Soils to share your particular needs for improving soil and plant health. In addition to our “off the shelf” products, we can custom blend something that works best for you.

Thanks for visiting us online. We invite you to Grow with Us.
