About Cardwell Farms
Cardwell Farms is committed to the production of quality certified organic soil amendments and mulches for our customers.
Our priority is to find organic solutions for weed/insect control, moisture control, and the maintenance of nutrient levels and healthy soil structure, all in an environmentally responsible manner. As a result of concerns arising from topsoil mining to supply material for the landscape industry, we looked for alternative ways to meet this need. In 1991 we began developing the formula for the production of the compost used today for our growing mediums. This compost consists of forestry by-products, fisheries by-products, and various mixes of farm manure. Cardwell Farms processes approximately 65000 tonnes of various organic inputs annually, which are marketed in Eastern Canada and the north-eastern United States. In our bagging facility our automated Form, Fill and Seal packaging equipment has enabled us to offer private label packaging in addition to our Cardwell lines.
We also offer compost products to the wholesale landscaping market. These include Country Blend Compost, Composted Sheep Manure, Atlantic Marine Compost, Organic Black Earth , Compost-enriched topsoil, and a Compost/peat blend Potting Soil. All of our products are certified organic by Atlantic Certified Organic(ACO). Cardwell Farms considers itself a progressive company looking to expand the use of by-product inputs for formulating our organic compost products and in new applications of our products within the horticultural and agricultural industries.
Cardwell Farms is a member of The Compost Council of Canada. We were awarded the Ministers Marketing Award of Excellence (export category) in 1998 in recognition of our contributions to marketing New Brunswick agricultural products.
At Cardwell Farms we believe it is important to give back to our community. Our corporate philanthropy includes support of our local food banks through “Plant A Row/Grow A Row” community garden projects which assist people in need in our region; supplying materials for fund-raising projects; and financial support of various charities and organizations.
