Where We Come From:
New Earth began out of L&H Packing in San Antonio. Manure was our problem and we were looking for a solution almost 30 years ago. We came across composting as a means to get "rid" of our waste cost effectively. Since that time we have created a company that has seen rapid growth. New Earth has taken this model of creating a valuable "New Earth" product from many business and municipalities problems. With well over 1000 active customers we have the experience and the infrastructure to create sustainability through composting. Whether you are a customer who purchases our composts, soils, or mulches or are a City, Business or Municipal Authority wanting a solution, New Earth's team is ready to work for you. Our goal is to be the best in our industry by providing the highest quality products and services. Give us a call to see how New Earth can work for you.
