CAPRINASA - ECO-ORGANIC GOAT MANURE
The ideal soil enhancer
and fertilizer for any ecologically conscious farmer! Fully cured goat
manure is odorless, easy and clean to handle and even
the fresh manure does not burn or attract unwanted insects like most
other manures. It can be applied directly on vegetables, trees,
flowers and herbs and serves as mulch or potent fertilizer.
My goats are fed with high quality feed and browse in an
area with diversified eco-organic fodder. The manure has an approximate NPK
ratio (depending on the feed) of 1.6 : 0.6 : 1.2. Even
more potent than the manure is goat urine, which contains a high level
of nitrogen and potassium. My goat shed is designed in a way that I
can collect both in a very clean and efficient way. The amount of
urine in the mix is just the right amount to increase the potency of
the manure but still not make it burn.
The results of using goat manure compost
(caprinasa) in my plants has been so good that I am incorporating the
manure into most of my nursery potting soil as well as into soil
whenever I plant any tree at my farm. The manure works as a safe, slow
release fertilizer and is vitalizing for any type of soil. The
composted manure (caprinasa) is a highly potent organic fertilizer.
Starting in January 2011, Govardhan Gardens
will offer the following two products:
1) 40 lbs of fresh goat manure: $8
2) 40 lbs of partially or fully decomposed*
*It takes 3-5 months for natural soil micro
organisms to break down the dry manure and turn it into a rich and
nutritious compost; once applied, it will increase the beneficial soil
organisms of your soil and add valuable nutrients to your plants.
Partially decomposed manure is at least 2 months old, fully
decomposted manure between 3 and 5 months.
Comparing the quality/price ratio of this
compost at only 37.5 cents per pound to any other organic fertilizer
makes it a compelling choice for any eco-conscious gardener or farmer.
These products are priced to sell and
will never be in store for long.
NEWS: I decided to give
away some goat manure for free in exchange for filling up bags. For
each bag anyone wants to get for free, he has to fill
up five more bags for Govardhan Gardens.
