At one time there were more than 200 dairies in San Diego County. Now the Frank Konyn Dairy, sister company of San Pasqual Valley Soils, is one of only two. San Pasqual Valley Soils is a 13-acre composting facility on adjacent land that supports the dairy and composts its manure. San Pasqual Valley Soils also accepts yard trimmings, agricultural residues, straw, wood shavings, and wood chips for composting and mulch production. Each year, we help landscaping businesses divert 14,000 tons of greens waste from our local landfills.
The dairy collects brewery grains to feed its herd of about 880 milking cows, as well as food scraps, fruits, fruit pulp, vegetables and discarded bakery materials. More than 1,000 tons a month of this material, most of which was being landfilled, is now feeding cows and supporting a local, family-owned business.
Our OMRI-listed Valley’s Best Compost® is approved for use in organic agriculture, and we’re proud this product supports many of the County of San Diego’s largest organic farms.
San Pasqual Valley Soils and the Frank Konyn Dairy are continuously working to keep milk production and compost creation local, sustainable and affordable to San Diego County residents. We thank all of our customers and partners for allowing this to happen.
