Through the Years
Founded in 2004 to address the needs of correcting issues of the specialized testing developed by a team of researchers from Colorado State University. Finding solutions for biological imbalances in the soil with unique soil amendment products and practices.
In 2007, Earthfort developed the Dirt Simple line of Compost extracting equipment. Enabling farmers to create small scale biological inoculants to enhance their soil and extend the useful life of compost.
In 2010, relocated to current facilities and began development of Soil ProVide, a shelf stable, broad spectrum inoculant to help farmers at a larger scale than compost extraction allowed for.
In 2011, introduced Soil ProVide and Soil ReVive. Soil ReVive is a complementary product to Soil ProVide, a food resource to feed and stimulate the microbes in Soil ProVide. Both products are certified organic.
In early 2023, Earthfort Africa Ltd. was made official! We registered our Soil Fortify product for importation and initial application purposes within Kenyan borders. Soil Fortify is a food resource that feeds and stimulates the microbes in soil.
