Since 1912 Snow’s Farm has been providing the surrounding Fairfield County, CT area with 100% ALL NATURAL farm fresh products. We make nearly all the products that we sell on the farm and the ones that we do not directly make ourselves come from an ALL NATURAL farm provider similar to ourselves. Generally the products that we do not make ourselvelves come from other farms so that we can still provide our customers with the overall grade A (the highest quality possible) goods and services.
The Humus Loam sold at the farm is screened down to 3/4″ to eliminate rocks and other debris larger than 3/4″ in overall size. Since this process is done using large production farm equipment, there are occasions when a rock or stone may slip through the screening machine; however, we do our best to offer our customers the highest quality humus loam.
Ordering material in bulk is certainly not an exact science, but here is a good method to give you a rough idea: For every 3″ of material at 1,000 square feet, you’ll need 3-1/2 yards of material. To figure out square footage, multiply the length x width of the area you want to cover (L x W). No area of land is completely perfect, but at least this will give you a basic idea as to what size delivery you’ll want to order or how much material you’ll want to pick up.

The driveway stone comes in many different sizes, the most common of which is 3/8″, 1/2″, and 3/4″ and 1 1/4″. While we can special order many other sizes, shapes, or varieties, the most common sizes we keep in stock nearly all year round are the sizes listed above. Aside from the size of the stone you order there is not usually any larger size rocks in the material; it is designed to be used for your driveway, drainage, walkways, patios, and other places where you want a stone padding.
For all of our bulk materials the minimum delivery quantity is 5 cubic yards.

NO! Due to weight limits the maximum stated is what we can load the truck with. Mulch is lighter than soil / stone. This is why trucks are able to carry more mulch.
