Organic protein fertilizer without compost?

Hello,

I would really like to go organic all the way with our new property (6+ acres). The lawn is in really poor, scraggly shape but there is no way that I can afford to buy compost to rake into the grass before fertilizing (all of our money is currently being sucked into interior repairs). Is it worthwhile to still spread organic fertilizer without spreading compost first and what would you recommend if so?

I'm just about to build my compost bins and I have LOADS of leaves to compost and will be paying a visit to Starbucks among other ideas so hopefully I'll have compost soon. I started a worm-bin over the winter so I'm on my way. The organic thing is just a little slow to start up on no budget! :o)
