“Where can I buy Purple Cow Organics products?”

You can find an independent garden center near you on our store locator, found under the “Where to Buy” tab. The pins in red are our CHAMPION retail stores. These are the stores that have committed to carrying our entire retail line all year. The pins in blue may not have all of our products in stock so we recommend calling ahead.

“Where can I buy bulk (larger quantities) of Purple Cow Organics products?”

To find a location close to you who sells our bulk products, please go to the “Where to Buy” tab, and check the box that says “Bulk.” Be sure to ask about the individual re-sellers delivery programs as well.

“What do I use to fill my raised bed garden?”

Purple Cow Organics has created a soilless mix for a raised bed garden, that is ready to be grown in just as it is. This mix is weed seed free, and is not made with soil, so it has no potential for environmental contamination, and supports “green” land management as it does not require the stripping of topsoil resources.

You can use the calculator below to determine how much material you will need depending on the size of your bed.

“What if I have an existing garden or raised bed that I want to rejuvenate?”

Purple Cow Organics Activated Compost is perfect to bring new life to an existing raised bed or in-ground garden area. It is 100% organic and plant-based and includes our proprietary PCO Mineral Complex. This includes added trace minerals and nutrients to boost the flavor and nutrition of the food you grow. We recommend topdressing your existing garden bed with a 2 inch layer of Activated Compost.

A few additional tips for maximizing your growing experience:

Tomato Gro:   If you’re growing tomatoes, peppers, eggplants or similar vegetables, our Tomato Gro is an additional soil amendment that has specifically targeted minerals for these plants to flourish.

BioActive All-Purpose Fertilizer:   Contains beneficial, living, endomycorrhizal fungi which may naturally increase plants uptake of nutrients and water. Sprinkle granular fertilizer on garden as directed.

Purple Cow Compost Tea:   Will provide humic acid and some organic matter to improve soil quality. Steep in water 20 minutes with some gentle stirring or allow tea bag to sit in water overnight.

BioActive Veggie Supercharger:   A quick way to replenish the nutrients in the soil. This is a soluble powder that works great in either our Compost Tea or water.

“How much material will it take to…”

Please click on the calculator to the right to help you figure out the correct amount of material to purchase.

To find the number of  1 cubic foot bags of Activated Compost you need for 2 inches of coverage: multiply the width of your bed by the length of your bed and divide by 6.
