Read our blog post on the benefits of farmyard manure.
During the winter months, the cattle are housed in their winter sheds where they are bedded on clean straw. The manure and straw mix from the cattle’s bedding is then collected together and stacked into a large heap.
Over the next few months, the heap is turned on a regular basis which produces high temperatures. This helps to breaks down the manure and straw quickly and also helps to eliminate a lot of the weed seeds which are usually associated with farmyard manure. The end result is a dark, rich traditional farmyard manure.
We often get asked why our Matured Farmyard Manure hasn’t got the strong smell of regular farmyard manure, this is because the manure we sell to our customers has gone through a natural process which leaves a dark, rich, matured manure. If manure has a very strong smell it usually means that it hasn’t broken down properly and still needs time to mature.
Our Matured Farmyard Manure also forms the basis of our peat-free JPR Gold soil conditioner/mulch.

How to use
Our Matured Farmyard Manure is a traditional farmyard manure. It is a blend of cow manure and straw which is matured over a period of time, making it a great product to use on your vegetable beds and garden borders.
We often get asked if it is safe to use our manure straight away or whether it should be left for some time to mature. The answer is that our manure is safe to used on vegetable beds and borders straight away. The manure we sell has gone through the maturing process before we sell it to our customers. The result is a matured farmyard manure, dark and rich with very little to no strong manure smell to it, this is because it has had the time to break down and mature. properly.
Traditionally manure is spread on top of beds and borders as a mulch in the late autumn and allowed to break down into the soil over the winter. It becomes incorporated into the soil when you are preparing your beds for spring and summer planting. Consequently we sell the majority of our manure during the autumn and winter months.
However our Matured Farmyard Manure can be purchased all year round but we would always recommend digging it into the soil if applied from spring onwards. Why is this? If the manure is left on top of the beds as a mulch from late spring and into the summer it can become dry, hard, lumpy and difficult to incorporate into the soil. So to reiterate, it is always best to dig manure into the soil if applying from late spring. If you still want to mulch at these times with a manure based product, you can always use our JPR Gold which can be used all year round as a mulch on your beds and borders.
Something we do in our own vegetable beds is to mulch them in the autumn with the manure and then cover with a layer of weed suppressing matting which we peel back at planting time. The plants can then be planted straight into the enriched soil.
Sometimes we have also covered the manure covered beds with cardboard to supress the weeds and then mulched the top of the cardboard with our Peat Free compost or the JPR Gold, or you can use your own compost. We then plant through the mulch and cardboard and into the manure and soil bed at planting time.
