Applying biochar to land increases soil fertility, making even marginal soils more productive. Buying in bulk means getting more bang for your buck, but when you buy premium bulk biochar from Wakefield BioChar, you do more than save money. Biochar reduces the workload necessary to maintain healthy soil, saving you time as well.
Understanding Bulk Biochar: A Cost-Effective Solution for Various Applications
For instance, when you buy bulk compost + biochar, a purely organic blend of OMRI-listed compost made from wood feedstock, mycorrhizal fungi, and Wakefield Premium Biochar, you pay just $250 for a 2 cubic yard Super Sack.
Buying biochar in bulk makes economic sense for all types of large landowners or large properties, including:
- Golf courses
- Park systems
- Country clubs
Of course, buying biochar in bulk also makes sense for resellers. You will always have biochar readily available for clients.
Cost Savings and Economies of Scale With Bulk Biochar Purchases
Keep in mind that once applied, biochar stays in your soil for decades, if not centuries. That’s another reason buying biochar in bulk as a soil conditioner makes good economic sense. Not only do you use considerably less fertilizer, but biochar’s water retention properties mean there is less need to water, even during dry spells.
Farmers are now able to get federal grant money with the NRCS program. Partner with Wakefield to make adding biochar to your farmland affordable.
Ensuring a Stable Supply: Consistency and Availability in Bulk Orders
What is biochar? It consists of biomass heated to a high temperature in a no-oxygen environment. Pyrolysis, as this process is known, results in a carbon-rich, highly stabilized soil amendment.
Biochar was first used more than 2,500 years ago in the Amazon Basin. Indigenous people burned organic material and allowed it to smolder. Mixing it into the soil created Terra Preta, the rich Black Earth that made poor jungle soils exceptionally fertile. That fertility and productivity are still evident to this day.
All biochar is not alike. Our biochar is made from 100 percent pine wood from paper mills. This wood would otherwise have gone into landfills or simply rotted away. If left to simply decompose, much of the wood’s carbon content would convert to carbon dioxide and head into the atmosphere.
These greenhouse gas emissions are the primary cause of global warming and related climate change. Instead, organic waste that would otherwise have been discarded and contributing to global warming is turned into an incredible soil amendment.
For every pound of biochar put into the earth, two pounds of carbon dioxide is sequestered.
Consistency is one of the great advantages of ordering in bulk. We ensure that our biochar products are low dust with the same particle size. You know exactly what to expect, and you reliably receive it.

Enhanced Soil Health and Fertility With Ample Biochar Applications
Here’s how to use biochar for various large applications:
- Lawn–Top dress a lawn or field with biochar to reach 5-10 percent by volume for the top 4 inches of soil.
- Golf courses–Golf course managers know that healthy grass is a critical element of the golfer’s experience. Not only is the golf course soil healthier, but so are any nearby trees and shrubs.
- Landscaping–Apply biochar to the planting bed’s surface. Apply biochar directly to woodlands or use a broadcasting application.
- Farms–Biochar’s scalability in farm fields improves soil health while increasing crop yields. Use less water and fertilizer while enjoying a more bountiful harvest.
