About Us

Back in 1916, Edward Stone started off as a local farmer. He had trouble finding good soils and fertilizers for his crops, so he decided to start his own company. Now over 100 years later, EB Stone has continued making superior quality soils & fertilizers, and we are still a family owned company to this day. We have years of growing experience and long-time connections with our respected suppliers. All of our Recipe 420 branded products are carefully crafted using only the finest ingredients. We help growers like you get the most of their crops and time!.


All Recipe 420 products are made locally in Northern California.

Environmentally Conscious

From developing weather resistant bags that are still recyclable, to using printing inks with zero VOC’s, to using delivery trucks that meet EPA clean air standards, we’re committed to reducing our carbon footprint. We know that when you are choosing Recipe 420 products you are doing so because you believe in a greener garden and environment. We believe that we’re obligated to provide you with the best quality organic products!


We take great care to provide the highest quality products in the industry today. It’s all about integrity of ingredients, consistency, and results. Our uniquely formulated potting mixes, soil amendments, and fertilizers are specifically designed for both professional growers and home gardeners.


We designed our headquarters in Northern California to reduce energy use by incorporating two high tech wind turbines to harness wind power. These turbines produce enough energy to power our entire production facility, offices, and plenty more! We also reduced our energy use by installing skylights throughout our production warehouse for natural lighting and by adding lighting that turns itself off when that part of the building is unoccupied.
