Manure for Gardeners

It’s gorgeous. It looks, smells, and feels like dirt but it’s fully composted and aged manure all from our sanctuary animals, mixed with straw bedding and hay.

2015 pickup dates:  Saturdays between 9 am and 3 pm until the end of the year; other days by appointment. Bring a pickup truck, trailer, or heavy duty compost bags or buckets.

Reports back from gardeners say that this stuff is magic.

This season we have two varieties:

Catalyst Compost: SMOKIN’! If you need hot manure to get your own compost pile cooking fast, you should bring tins or heat-proof cannisters. This stuff will get your compost broken down much faster, and will add vital nutrients.

Magic Mountains of Manure: 100% composted manure, multi-flavored: gifts from cows, goats, sheep, horses, and a variety of fowl, plus straw and hay, all cooked, regularly turned, and ready to go. Can be put directly on working gardens and lawns.

Note: we are not “organic”, but we do not use pesticides or any kind of chemicals on the property. All animals are free range, happy, and healthy, and their primary diet is orchard grass, timothy hay, seeds, and fresh fruits and vegetables.

We invite you to come and take as much as you want, as many loads as you want. If you are able, we’d greatly appreciate a tax-deductible donation to the farm to help us keep our tractor running and filled with diesel, as little or as much as you want to give.

For large loads, or if you can’t make it on Saturdays, please contact us regarding other arrangements for pickup.
