Our peat is reed sedge peat exhibiting a very high fiber content. The
addition of our peat into soil mixtures will slow water movement through

Peat Technologies (AMPT) has located their pelletizing manufacturing
facility on the Sampson Farms bog. AMPT manufactures small bead size
pellets comprised of Sampson Farms peat along with other additives for
the inoculant industry. Inoculants are used to enhance the germination

bulk scraped after a lengthy process of preconditioning to eliminate
roots, sticks and other debris.
Farms peat soils are blended with sand mixtures to hold valuable
moisture and nutrients, add a valuable growing medium and still maintain
proper drainage. Golf course constructors have been using sand and peat
soil mixtures for years and have met the stringent USGA specifications
for golf course sub soils.
use peat soil to maintain proper pH levels, to provide proper exchange
