Hi,

I'm looking for a place to buy organic soil amendments by the ton in upstate NY.  My farm is in Delaware county and I'm looking for places that deliver dried blood or seed meal, rock phosphate, potash, lime etc.  I would also use some crushed rock if anyone knows where to get it in quantities of at least 1000lb.  Most of the people I know around here raise livestock and have limited knowledge of organic inputs so any and all help will be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,
Jake

Your soil is already 50% crushed rock(rock phosphate, potash, lime, etc)
But you want the 'natural crushed rocks to be more bio-available".  
You can make it happen with soil life. Compost Tea (worm casting+mealworm+kefir+kombucha). I would also add some carbon.
