Galil Soil Farm
Galil Soil Farm started because as passionate home growers and gardeners living in Israel, we weren't able to get the chemical-free, rich biological soil amendments we so yearned to get our hands on. So with no other choice we began producing our own bio-fertilizers, soil amendments, and plant foods. First it started with regular compost, then worm castings, then into compost teas and Terra Pretta (biochar), and most recently into bio-fermentation techniques. After a few years of production for personal use, seeking to provide others with the very best plant and soil food, the stuff we were using on our own plants, we grew our passion into a business. Enjoy! We know your plants will!

Why Our Products?
Life is about balance. In its unadulterated state, the earth is in perfect chemical balance. But over time, the organic chemistry of life begins leaning to one extreme or the other. But in order for plants to grow the chemistry needs to be just right. Our products, containing only the chemicals produced by the natural processes of worms, fermentation of fish and plants, and fungal and microbial digestion bring your plants and soil the perfect balance of organic plant and soil chemistry.
At Galil Soil Farm we work with what nature leaves over. We go to the local market next to the Sea of Galilee and collect fish waste from fish caught by local Sea of Galilee fisherman which we then ferment into Fish Amino Acid. We forage for wild plants growing in the Sea of Galilee region which we then ferment into Fermented Plant Juice, one of the best plant fertilizers and soil conditions you can use on your plants. We collect the leachate (watery runoff) from our worm castings and pasteurize it to make a plant and soil cocktail rich in readily available amino and folic acids. The bottom line is that at Galil Soil Farm, nothing goes to waste and waste gets turned into gold.
Part science, part art, creating our sustainable fertilizers and soil amendments is often more art than science. Like a dancer following the lead of a partner, we follow the lead of the soil, the plants, the fermentation process. Using the sciences as our guidelines, we take our products the way they lead us. The bottom line: Our art is making biologically alive soil.
Our products are probiotic, full of beneficial microbes, thriving with active biology. Beneficial bacteria, fungi, nematodes, and protozoa find a home in our products. Many of our products, such as our Fish Amino Acid and our Fermented Plant Juice are fermented using ancient thousands-year-old agricultural techniques. And all of our products are derived from biologically rich organic sources.
We are always available to our customers to answer questions, discuss products, educate, or just visit. If a customer needs to know the best way to use a product or simply has a gardening or farming idea they want to share, we're here to listen and work together. Whether over the phone or over a cup of coffee we make sure to be available to the farmers and gardeners we serve.
