Our herd of Dexter cows spend the wet cold winters months in our dry warm barn, Molinia grass is used as a bedding material.
We mix the used bedding with wool from our Welsh mountain sheep. this completely natural product is aerobically composted for several months until it is has completely broken down to a fine compost.
The resulting rich compost has been described by some of our gardening customers as 'rocket fuel'.
