Deep Roots in Agriculture
Our Founder and co-owner Nick Bissett not only spent his childhood days playing in his mom’s garden in Yorkshire, but he also spent many months each summer working on his late grandfather’s farm in Ireland.
His grandfather, John Bissett, affectionately referred to as “Big Rock” was known throughout Rush County Dublin for his horticulture principles and unique market gardening techniques. Nick literally learned from one of the masters.
As a kid, he complained about having to spend hours outside helping his grandfather, but little did he know it would play a big role in shaping his future.
My Organic Turf is born
Decades later, Nick continued what his grandfather had begun. As a father of two girls, Nick simply didn’t believe in exposing his kids and pets to harmful chemicals in the name of having a great-looking lawn. He knew there had to be a better way. So, he started brewing his own compost tea in his garage. Not long after, he met co-owner, Eric McCarthy, by chance and the two decided to team up. The My Organic Turf revolution was born.
We might have had humble beginnings, but over the years, our team has expanded. And we’ve continued to explore and test dozens of natural formulations in search of the best formulas for fertilizer, weed, and pest control.
We decided that as scientists, parents, and humans, it was our responsibility to use our collective experience to create, once and for all, a non-toxic all-organic fertilizer program that’s safe, effective, and good for the environment. We’ve already seen tremendous growth as more and more people support the mission for sustainable lawn care. Still, we continue to push the needle every day.
Over the years, we’ve moved from Nick’s garage to a 15,000-square foot warehouse, but we still have the same mission: to invest in the planet and leave it better than we found it.
Nick’s philosophy is this: If you have a lawn, you’re a farmer. Our team’s goal is to help you understand how to take care of your lawn from that unique viewpoint. We take time to help you understand the different components of lawn care and sustainably implement them throughout the seasons in Florida.
Our roots may be in agricultural practices, but the heart of what we do today is about investing in the planet.
We live and breathe research and development, investing a significant percentage of our time, energy, and money toward creating innovative solutions to meet all our customers’ needs. Our research and development facility plays an important role in our product development and quality assurance programs. To achieve safer, more effective results, we are always challenging ourselves to learn more.
We begin every stage of research and development with one thing in mind: you. It’s why everything we develop at My Organic Turf is safe, environmentally friendly, and sustainably designed.
Our commitment to serving the environment and our communities makes us the top choice for green residential and commercial fertilizer applications.
