Alpaca Poo: Perfect Garden & Potted Plant Soil Enhancer

SHED SHIT - Alpaca poo for spring gardening www.shedchetwynfarms.com

Spring Gardening....

SHED SHIT - Our air-cured and ground alpaca bean products - great for enhancing the soil with extra nutrients (1.2.1) Available in 2 forms - Bag of Beans - (1lb $10.00) Sprinkle around plants and seedlings, or "Tea-Bags" (2x 1oz bags $7.50) allow to steep in water and pour on seedlings and transplants!  From our friend Carson Arthur......

"As this trend of growing heirloom vegetables continues, there seems to be a transition away from synthetic fertilizers to feed them. This isn’t surprising as ‘GMO-messaging’ and benefits of organic food information becomes mainstream. As a result, health conscious homeowners like myself are returning to using manure as a soil conditioner.

Fibre to Yarn - 2022

Fibre to Yarn - 2022

When the alpaca are shorn in the spring months, the fleece is graded according to quality and stored in bags ready to sort, clean and organise later in the year.  Sheering took place last year on the first weekend of June 2021.  Along with our sheerer, a small team collected, bagged, tagged and stored the fleece, ready for us to work on this past winter.
