ALPACA POO FACTS:
Did you know that alpaca manure has a lot of value in the garden? In fact, many gardeners find this type of manure to be an excellent source of nutrients for optimal soil and plant health.
We will be selling prepackaged alpaca manure products and if you BYOBucket or truck, we will sell it by the bucket full or the truck load.
Even with its lower organic content, alpaca manure is considered a rich soil conditioner. Alpaca fertilizer improves the soil quality and its ability to retain water. It is also good for plants, providing a fair amount of nitrogen and potassium and about average levels of phosphorus. Since alpaca manure is mostly found in pellet form and doesn’t have the same components as other livestock feeders, like cows and horses, it does not need to be aged or composted before use. You can spread it directly onto garden plants without burning them. Best of all, it does not contain any weed seeds so there’s no worry about plucking sprouts from the garden following application, as with some types of manure.
