Manure Compost

Soil Amendment

This compost blend is the basis of all the soil mixes we make. Raw materials are assembled in windrows, monitored for temperature and air supply, and turned as needed. All composts are tested for maturity before blending and vending, and are free of live weed seed. 

Please visit Our Compost Process for more information.

Ingredients

Blended from bovine, equine, and avian manures; food residuals; spoiled silage; bark; late-cut hay; mature compost; sphagnum peat moss. 

Uses

  • Field application
  • Hoop houses
  • Garden plots
  • Raised beds
  • Landscaping
  • Perennials
  • Fruit trees
  • Compost tea

Best Practices

Use as an amendment to existing soil. Due to pH levels and mechanical characteristics, Manure Compost is not intended for use as a complete growing media.

Prep For Use

Use as-is or mix with warm water to create a compost tea.

Handling

Avoid drastic changes in moisture/saturation. Store undercover, out of direct sunlight. Protect from weed seed, petroleum products, and other contaminants.

Supplemental Fertility

Regular incorporation of compost during the fall and/or spring will generally meet fertility needs for sustained production. Application specifics depend on existing fertility, soil condition, and crop rotations. Manure Compost can be mixed up to 50/50 with your existing media.

Storage and Shelf Life

Store in a neutral environment which encourages moisture retention and protects from UV light. For optimal performance of living soil, we suggest using it within 8-12 months from the date of purchase.
