Finding good compost for topdressing

Hey all,

I'm looking for some tips on finding properly aged compost for topdressing my lawn. I ordered some compost last year from a reputable mulch/compost supply place, and there was still quite a bit of un-decomposed material (small pieces of sticks, etc). When I spoke with them, they said that is the finest they screen their compost.

Are there any good pointers (or sources in MN) on finding well aged compost?

As long as those little chunks of sticks can be easily crushed with your fingers I wouldn't worry about using it...
Now that I know that clay's texture(platelets) has nothing to do with water infiltration, percolation, or drainage
,,, I wonder what does...
