Earth’s Outlet Expands to
Earth’s Outlet, Inc., a Texas based organic fertilizer and natural soil inoculant supplier, has expanded its marketing and distribution into Utah and Idaho with the introduction of its products to the agricultural and retail cooperative network of the Intermountain Farmers Association at the co-op’s recent vendor expo. With twenty-five of its own country store and garden center locations and thirty independent dealers, IFA provides an expansive customer base and solid market penetration opportunities for Earth’s Outlet.
True to its principles of service and relationship based business development, Earth’s Outlet has initiated its expansion into Utah and Idaho by establishing a team of local representation. Currently, four individuals comprise the local Earth’s Outlet group, bringing a wide range of agricultural, business, and sales experience to personally service wholesale buyers, retail stores, and farmers. Earth’s Outlet has also committed to work closely with IFA to market and brand the products for the benefit of its retailers.
“We are impressed with the kind of support IFA provides to its retailers and independent dealers,” remarks Mark Smith, president of Earth’s Outlet, Inc. “It’s exciting to have this opportunity to work with IFA to bring premium bio-safe fertilizers to their extensive market. We believe these products will satisfy their customers beyond their expectations at a great price, and keep them coming back for more!”
Earth’s Outlet, Inc. is the exclusive distributor in the state of Texas for VermiTechnology Unlimited, Inc., a producer of OMRI listed and other all natural soil amendments utilizing vermiculture and microbial processing developed and perfected through its thirty-four years of manufacturing. In the few years since the principals of Earth’s Outlet began representing VTU’s products in Texas, they have successfully established a market with growers, farmers, and independent retail nurseries, as well as having the products tested with successful results by the USDA-ARS and written into a number of TxDOT project specifications. Earth’s Outlet also brings several technologies from other manufacturers to assist farmers, growers, and municipalities operate more cost efficiently in conjunction with their fertilizer programs.
“We’re happy with the way our growth into the area is going,” Smith says. “It’s a great move forward for our company, and the people of Utah and Idaho are certainly going to see a lot of benefit from our retail products and agricultural programs.”
Earth’s Outlet, Inc.
After many years in the making, Earth’s Outlet, marketing arm of VermiTechnology Unlimited, LLC and its exclusive Texas distributor, successfully incorporated in the state of Texas, May 29, 2009.
Mark Smith, principal owner of Earth’s Outlet, Inc., began researching the vermicomposting industry over fourteen years prior to the creation of the private corporation. During his years of research, he developed many key contacts and friendships, including that of Larry Martin, owner of VTU and producer of the increasingly popular Black Castings™ pure worm casting product. Operating first as an independent manufacturer’s representative, then as a distributor under the sole proprietorship of Earth’s Outlet, Smith successfully introduced to the Texas horticultural and agricultural industries VTU’s flagship Black Castings™ organic fertilizer as well as its more recently developed liquid casting extract, VermaPlex®.
“Earth’s Outlet is committed to great customer service, thus the principle of BRC was coined – Beyond Reasonable Care,” states Smith. “Our employees, customers and everyone we work with define our company. By working to earn their loyalty, we build a foundation for everyone’s benefit.” He adds that it’s this dedication to BRC during his 35 years of servicing industry that has brought him to where he is today as president of the company.
Earth’s Outlet, Inc. is hitting the ground running, having several years of active distribution under its belt and a customer base that includes the famous Teas Nursery of Houston, the Texas Department of Transportation, and the USDA-ARS. The move to incorporate has been in the works since the inception of the sole proprietorship. “It took some time, but we wanted to make sure the steps were done right,” Smith explains. “We have a long future ahead of us, and we have the potential to benefit a lot of people promoting natural and healthy fertilizers, like Black Castings™ and VermaPlex®.”
