Who We Are
Coast of Maine Organic Products was founded in 1996 with the simple idea that a healthy planet needs healthy soil to sustain life. From this idea, a love of gardening and a commitment to sustainable practices, Coast of Maine Organic Products has grown to offer what we believe are the most unique and effective organic gardening products available. Our organically approved, compost-based soils, enriching mulches, soil supplements and liquid fertilizers are designed to enhance and support healthy soil biology. We compost residuals sourced locally in Maine and New Brunswick, such as shellfish (lobster & crab), salmon, wild blueberries, and cow manure. Additional local ingredients include: tree bark, worm castings, and seaweed. Coast of Maine distributes organic retail bagged goods to independent garden centers along the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, and parts of the Mid-West.

Not sold in “big box” stores! Coast of Maine proudly supports the local garden centers and retailers. It has long been the philosophy of the Coast of Maine brand that our locally made products should be sold by local independent retailers and garden centers that feed the local economy. Independent garden centers and retailers specialize in gardening. They provide a level of superior knowledge, customer service and community support that the big-box, mass retail stores just can’t match. Coast of Maine organic products are available at independent garden centers, local retailers, indoor gardening and grow stores, and many local hardware stores across the East Coast, from Maine through the Mid-Atlantic and parts of the Mid-West.
