Earth Care Farm

In 1977, Michael Merner had an epiphany while standing in the home garden on his small farm; “Living soil is the foundation of our wellbeing. A nourishing soil produces healthy plants, which leads to healthy animals, people and a sustainable planet.” Mike began making compost soon after that realization. Forty-three years later, Mike and his wife still live and advise on the farm that their daughter, Jayne Merner Senecal, owns and manages (with lots of help from the family and dedicated staff)!   As the first and largest composter in Rhode Island, the farm transforms hundreds of tons of materials per year into rich compost for gardens across New England.
