we are proud and confident of our products


At Stanler Farms, we take pride in being a family-run business since 1975, initially focused on maize and cattle farming. In 1985, our journey took a transformative turn when one of South Africa’s largest mushroom producers approached us top recycle their spent compost. This marked the inception of Stanler Farms as a premium provider of growing media.

Mushroom Compost

This is where the magic starts. Our weed-free organic compost is the perfect start to every garden. It naturally increases the humus in the soil, which in turn, grows microbes and releases the nutrients that your plants need.

Top Soil

Stanler Farms produces an organically enriched topsoil. This is ideal to use when needing to fill or level an area before planting. Our topsoil stands out from the rest because we combine it with compost for added nutrients and better water absorption.

Lawn Dressing

Lawn dressing is a mixture of our weed-free compost and washed sand. It is perfect for spreading on top of your current lawn to boost the nutrient level.  It can help you to smooth the surface of the lawn for an even, manicured appearance.
