What About Grazon?🐘

Composted Elephant Manure comes from true herbivores that routinely eat local hay that is Grazon free. This is directly confirmed by the farmer of the hay and scientific trials of plants growing in the compost. Also, these wonderful animals are not injected with growth hormones.

What About Invasive Plant Seeds?🐘

Composted manure from herbivores can contain many types of invasive seeds, as the gut of these animals do not always digest or break down the seeds. Horses manure, for example, can be very problematic because when the horses are grazing in large pastures, they can eat plants and seeds from a large variety of wild species.  These wild, random, and unknown seeds could end up in your garden. This is NOT a problem with our Composted Elephant Manure, because the elephants are not grazing in pastures. Their diet is actually very controlled -they are not eating random or wild plants.

The seeds that do sometimes come through the elephant compost are mainly from Timothy grass. But this hay does not reseed quickly and is super easy to pull up and is not considered invasive. If you have a pile of Composted Elephant Manure and you are getting tons of invasive plants growing out of it, chances are it is being blown in by the wind, carried in from wildlife/birds, or was in your soil in that area to begin with. At the composting facility, we always “shave” the pile before loading your order. That means we discard the top 6-12″ before loading your premium product -that way any seeds blown in are not included..

Also, Mother Nature is intelligent. It can “smell” nutrients. This compost attracts roots, plants, and seeds by its very nature!

Why is Composted Elephant Manure so expensive?🐘

We measure value in terms of nutrient density and hygiene.  When shopping for compost, don’t just look at the volume;  look at it’s nutrient density.  Consider how much Nitrogen, for example, you are getting.  When you compare the various composts in terms of nutrient density, you will find that our compost product is a tremendous value!!  But wait!!!

Don’t just consider nutrient density, consider hygiene and source.  Is your compost coming from factory farmed animals?  Is it coming from creatures not eating a natural diet?  Is it coming from beasts who are routinely injected with growth hormones and antibiotics?  Is the compost “washed” or otherwise “sterilized”?  Is it coming from animals that are diseased?  Does the compost distributer openly disclose the exact name of the facility providing the “raw material?”

                    

International Year of the Soil

The United Nation’s Food and Agricultural Organization (UNFAO) has officially declared 2015 as the “International Year of the Soil,” and its instructions are both simple and imperative: We need to focus all of our energy on improving the soil quality of our planet, so that we may sustain life on this planet.
