Our Story

Established in 2001, Kochergen Farms Composting, Inc. was founded by Mike J. Kochergen whose family has been farming in the Central Valley of California for over 60 years. Kochergen Farms Composting, Inc. produces an OMRI Certified Organic Compost which has been a favorite of Growers from the Central Valley of California throughout the Central Coast. Our unique blend of Green Waste and Food Waste is one that growers purchase year after year.

In 2003, Kochergen Farms Composting, Inc. began accepting and processing food waste to work side by side with the composting operation. This program helps reduce refuse cost as well as reduce the amount of waste disposed of at the landfill.
