Nothing is wasted on our farm. Making and spreading compost on our land is a great way of utilising farm waste whilst replenishing our soil workforce of bacteria and fungi and boosting soil organic matter. It’s a brilliant way to recycle our poultry manure and left over apple pomace from pressing. The best compost is one that utilises materials that are readily available which is why we also add straw from our farm grown cereals and chipped wood pruning’s from our orchards. The skill lies in attaining the optimal temperature, aeration and blend of materials to produce a fungal dominated compost for our orchards and more bacterially balanced compost for our arable ground.
