From selling horse manure out of a wagon to making the best compost and soil mixes in Central Texas, Organics “By Gosh” has always taken things that others threw away and turned them into great products that make our land better than it was in the first place. Grandpa Gosh used to say, “It can be done, by gosh!”. This Gosh family motto stuck with our owner, Phil Gosh, his entire life. It was that attitude that gave Phil’s father, Scott, the idea to use his wagon to pick up and sell horse manure to farms in the area. Horse owners breathed a sigh of relief at the thought of someone else doing their smelly job. Farmers were thrilled at the prospect of a more bountiful harvest. And so the Gosh family business in natural fertilizer began in 1936, delivering manure to local customers in a little red wagon.  Meanwhile Phil’s mother, Joyce, was growing up on the Hermann-Spill Farm in Winters, Texas, where they ranched and farmed using manure-based fertilizer. After Phil’s parents got married they combined their talents and resources to deliver valuable products for lawns and gardens.

How SCORE helped.
