Composted Horse Manure
For over thirty years Tall Oaks Farm has been producing composted horse manure to local homeowners, gardeners, landscapers and nurseries. Composted horse manure is ideal for conditioning soils in flowerbeds and vegetable gardens, planting grass or sod, and mulching. The compost is derived from a blend of clean, organic based materials, including stable bedding, horse urine and manure. Raw materials are stacked into huge, moist piles, which are turned regularly to promote aerobic composting. The natural biological activity causes the piles to heat up to over 160ºF, killing weed seeds, roots, and pathogens.
