Meet the Faces Behind Katek Fertilizers
Katek Fertilizers Australia is a business based on family. Owners David & Lexe Ernst took over Katek in 2008 and have watched the business grow as fast as the crops and fields spread with their iconic organic fertilizer. Together with their son Nathanael and wife Kristin, who manage the day to day operations of the business, they keep their focus on producing products which keep soil, plants and grass super healthy, reducing the need for chemicals.
Sustainable farming is the key mission behind Katek Fertilizers, a desire to reduce the impact on the environment by producing products that enhance the soil, stimulate biology and build soil health, vitality and fertility.
Katek supplies a wide range of industries, from home gardeners and landscapers to hobby farmers, commercial growers and the hydromulching industry. Manufacturing over 7000 tonnes of composted poultry manure based organic fertilizers a year, Katek Fertilizers are distributed all over Australia.
As the head honcho of Katek Fertilizers, David keeps the rest of the team in line. With an extensive farming background and boundless experience and knowledge he is passionate about Sustainable Farming and producing organic fertilizer products that enhance soil health and structure, and stimulate soil biology.
