Try this innovative tool that makes turning compost less of a chore!

Ask any gardener to tell you their least-favorite gardening task, and they'll admit it's flipping compost. Composting is hard work. If you don't turn the pile regularly, your compost won't ripen. There's no easy way around it; turning compost always means some degree of manual labor.
Ask any gardener to tell you their least-favorite gardening task, and they'll admit it's flipping compost. Composting is hard work. If you don't turn the pile regularly, your compost won't ripen. There's no easy way around it; turning compost always means some degree of manual labor.

The Compost Crank is a nifty tool that can make the burden of turning compost a little easier. This device looks sort of like a corkscrew. You drill it into the compost pile, turn it and pull up to flip and aerate the compost pile. The stainless steel bar is compact and designed for use in tight spaces, like compost bins. It's lightweight, easy to use and sure beats the heck out of turning compost with a pitchfork.

What makes this tool even better is that Compost Crank is handmade using all American products! It's manufactured by members of the Ambrose family in Tucson, Ariz.  You can purchase it direct from their company, Lotech Products, and have it shipped right to your door.

With Compost Crank, flipping your compost can be almost enjoyable!
