About Us

Moorland Gold organic composts and top soils are produced by West Riding Organics Ltd.

We have been producing organic composts and top soils for over 20 years. These organic compost products are ideal for both professional growing and general gardening. They have also supported the reinstatement of moorlands, and helped to create sports grounds.

Moorland Gold produces specific growing mediums for most applications.

The Natural Approach to Compost

Moorland Gold peat products come from naturally occurring peat deposits, not from man-made, commercial peat extraction methods that can disrupt and damage the natural landscape and its ecosystems.

We collect our peat through water filtration. Rainfall washes peat deposits into rivers and streams, where they then collect in lakes and dams.

Our filtration system enables us to extract the peat, and process it with other natural ingredients to create rich, organic compost products. This potent material has all the benefits of commercially dug peat and a lot more.

Moorland Gold organic, alternative peat composts are abundant in minerals and trace elements, to encourage the growth of strong and healthy plants, while reducing the requirement additional feeding.

We add no artificial ingredients, allowing your plants and food to grow naturally.

Moorland Gold also produces top soils, which we make by blending the same naturally occurring peat product with river sand. Unlike recycled top soils, which can contain contaminates such as glass and brick dust, these include only natural ingredients. Our top soils are perfect for general gardening and for more specialist applications, such as root zones.

Thank you for your delivery of soil, which we requested for our ‘Sustainable Living’ project. We have been able to set up the outdoor learning environment for all our children, and we have been able to fill three raised planters with your soil and are now growing:- Tomato plants, Thorn-less Blackberry, Strawberry plants and Beans

Our Reception year classes filled another raised planter and made a Jubilee flower display, which was entered into thePenninesin Bloom competition.

The plants will be looked after during the summer holidays and we are keeping our fingers crossed for some dry days and sunshine, (the children have not had to do any watering to-date, due to the amount of rain we have had!!). Once again we are very, very grateful for your donation!
