Our soil conditioner consists of horse manure, straw, and a minimal amount of wood shavings, which helps to aerate the compost. The manure is collected daily from stable yards in the local area and brought to our farm where it is processed and turned regularly, allowing oxygen to permeate through. This creates heat, which kills most pathogens and weed seeds.

After roughly a month, the manure is put through a shredder to help break it down, therefore speeding up the process. For the next three months, the manure is continued to be turned and lastly it is screened to 40mm and ready for bagging or distribution.
