Our beloved cows, Elke & Frangipani have a great time grazing our fallow paddocks, eating scraps from the Shop and leaving their magic manure behind. Recently the crew from Biodynamic Sydney visited us for their annual mission to prepare Horn Manure (500). This preparation is produced during the cooler months to use in spring as a fertilising spray. Fresh biodynamic cow manure is pushed into old cow horns and buried in rich topsoil for 4-6 months. Come spring, the horns are dug up and this beautifully fermented, nutrient dense compost is collected and used to enhance and rejuvenate the soil. You can read more about biodynamic farming here.
Are you doing anything to prepare for the spring that will of course come around again?
