Get your garden ready for winter

   Bovine Gold Compost from Nestlé Training Center at Carnation Farm in Carnation is now available.

   The compost is made from cow manure and bedding which has been composted using forced aeration and then allowed to age for over 4 months. It is safe to handle and practically odor free. Bovine Gold is perfect for almost all types of gardening and will not burn plants.

   This compost is available by reservation only through Red Barn Composting in Redmond at 425-468-9342. There are no size limitations on orders. The sale will occur over the first four Saturdays in October, beginning on Saturday, Oct. 2, through Saturday, Oct. 23. Load times will begin at 8 a.m. and continue to 4:30 p.m. each day of the sale.

   Nestlé Training Center has announced that they will donate 10 percent of sales from the Bovine Gold compost sale to the Farmer Relief Fund. For more information, or to reserve your compost, call Red Barn Composting at 468-9342, or visit their website at
