NOP compliant manure based compost.
We use animal manure from our farm, old hay & shavings.
Never any grass clippings
Our own compost is used on our hay fields, vegetable fields & as a mulch during the growing season. We have a vested interest in producing the best compost possible. Plus composting our manure leads to a quicker breakdown of the material which is better for the environment.
We use a windrow method to compost where the material breaks down quickly over a 10 day period. Then ages for another 45-180 days. This compost is used on our own vegetable fields because of this we strive for every pile to reach 140°F to kill weed seeds. While we can’t guarantee that is 100% weed free, we have yet to see a weed sprout from our compost in the 4 years we have been using it.
Manure based compost is great for soil health. Some of the benefits of manure compost
- builds soil organic matter
- increases moisture retention especially in sandy soils (ask how we know)
- helps with soil compaction
- reduces soil erosion & runoff
- reduces plant stress during dry times
- slow release fertilizer
- supports a healthy active microbial soil environment
