We have always had a passion for growing

As an avid gardener with a passion for growing organically, our founder Jack Bates could find little in the way of fertilizers or amendments for organic gardeners here in the early 1980s. Jack started small. Some of our early fertilizer blends were mixed by being rolled back and forth across the parking lot in 55-gallon barrels.

From our small, simple beginnings over 37 years ago, Down To Earth™ has grown into one of the country’s leading manufacturers and distributors of natural fertilizers and premium organic gardening products.

Down To Earth’s Mission is in our company motto: “Practical Goods for Natural Living.” We offer a wide-ranging selection of natural, organic and health-conscious garden products at affordable prices that enrich people’s lives, are kind to our environment and fulfill the basic needs of daily living.
