This blend has been developed to mimic the synchronistic effect of the great bison and flocks of birds that followed behind them on the prairies – the deepest and richest of all soils. Millenia ago herds as far as the eye could see. Native Americans reported the sky was blacked out for 3 days with all the birds following behind the herds.
All of this manure diversity, and all of these interlinked ecosystem interactions have been recreated and weaved into a thermophilic, trace element enhanced, biologically rich, Biodynamic compost full of humic (humus)and fulvic acids. So now you can get the effect and all the benefits of the most perfect, most complete rotational grazing system, without having to own, manage or take care of any animals, whilst combining that with the effect of pure humus. The forest floor is rich in humus, which is naturally a growth promotor, immune booster and the perfect home for biology, responsible for the water infiltration, percolation and storage in the soil.
Containing all the benefits listed in our Biodynamic compost, more enhanced, more specialised and more firepower.
