Rhode Island's Oldest Operating Farm Composter
A WHOLISTIC FARM
We will be closed on Thanksgiving Day & Black Friday, November 22nd & 23rd
Earth Care Farm is tucked in the woods of Rhode Island with strawberry fields, rhubarb plants, Black Angus cattle, award winning garlic and mountains of beautiful compost.
In 1977, Michael Merner had an epiphany while standing in the home garden on his small farm; “ Living soil is the foundation of our well being. A nourishing soil produces healthy plants, which leads to healthy animals, people and a sustainable planet.” Mike began making compost soon after that realization. Forty years later, Mike and his wife still live and advise on the farm that their daughter, Jayne Merner Senecal, manages (with lots of help from the family and dedicated staff).
