At Rooster’s, we don’t use just any material to create our compost; we use manure from our very own, family-owned poultry farm in the heart of Amish Country in Dundee, Ohio. We raise 250,000 chickens every ten weeks, then recycle the manure on our farm into compost by turning, curing, screening, and bagging, finally preparing it to ship to your home. We are dedicated to providing you with compost that will enrich your soil and make your home-grown fruits and veggies strong. Here are three reasons that chicken manure compost gets the job done:

  1. Chicken manure is Rich in Key Nutrients

Chicken manure is naturally full of nutrients like nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium. When Rooster’s Organic chicken manure compost is applied to your soil, these nutrients work their way into the soil, strengthening it along the way. The healthier the soil is, the better your fruits and vegetables will be. 

  1. Chicken Manure on its Own Has Too Much Nitrogen

While chicken manure compost enriches the soil, chicken manure on its own has too much nitrogen which prevents your plants from growing healthy. When chicken manure is composted, the nitrogen levels balance out. 

  1. Rooster’s Manure Also Includes Micronutrients 

While macro-nutrients like nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium are all very important to soil health, Rooster’s compost also includes important micro-nutrients. You can find micro-nutrients such as magnesium, copper, iron, and zinc in our compost. Micro-nutrients are only needed in small doses, like vitamins in our diet, but they play an important role in the plant’s ability to extract nutrients from other foods. In a commercial fertilizer, such as 10-10-10 micro-nutrients are often missing. Our compost is basically a free nutrient boost for your plants.

In conclusion, choose Rooster’s farm-made organic chicken compost for your soil-strengthening needs.
