Making fertilizer in the early 1900’s

In 1916, E.B. Stone created a fertilizer that made his fruit crops the talk of other San Jose, CA farmers. When E.B. retired in 1979, he sold the family business to the Crandalls. They too have been dedicated to creating the highest quality fertilizers and amendments.

Over the years, E.B. Stone Organics has become a beloved Northern California company. In 2006 when an accidental fire destroyed E.B. Stone’s Suisun, CA production facility, the company’s competitors loaned them space to keep working while their facility was rebuilt. After rebuilding they renewed their commitment to sustainable gardening. Their factory is now 100% wind powered, they use biodegradable packaging, and they’ve expanded their organic line of soils and fertilizers.

For many years E.B. Stone Organics has blended and packaged our Sloat brand soils for San Francisco Bay Area gardens. We are proud to support this sustainably minded, Bay Area company.
