The Earnest Promise

Value in Every Purchase

Locally Sourced

Local agriculture waste turned to soil

Partnering with local farmers to better the health of our land, water, and air. It’s a partnership with a far reaching impact you can see, smell, and feel.

Quality Tested

Sifted and inspected to meet our highest standards

In manufacturing soil amendments, higher quantity equals higher payout. We believe quality supersedes everything. If we put our name on it, we guarantee quality..

Giving Back

Farmers and the environment win

A percentage of profits are returned to local farmers. We help them manage their waste and make a profit.

The Earnest Impact

Mind, Body, and Soul


Growing Mind

People who contribute to the greater good tend to gain a sense of power. They recognize they have the ability to transform lives and make the world a better place.


Growing Body

Many people who give their time live longer than those who don’t. Doing so delays the onset of serious illness and extends how long bodies function normally. This is likely related to having a sense of continued purpose.


Growing Soul

Because they’ve learned how good it feels to serve, they are better positioned to accept help when their time comes. And they can do so without embarrassment or shame.
