Many organic gardeners will quickly tell you compost tea is the best all-around liquid fertilizer you can use on your plants. Compost tea is generally made by collecting finished compost and placing it in a bucket filled with water. The compost and water is allowed to brew for several days in the sun. The liquid is then strained and used to water vegetables, flowers, or lawns.
So, you are probably wondering then….. what is manure tea?
What Is Manure Tea?
Manure tea is very similar to compost tea, in fact, it is compost tea but uses composted livestock manure.
The manure is collected and composted in the sun over the course of several months.
The livestock are raised in pastures that contain native grasses, where the cattle are allowed to graze just as nature intended.
Manure teas are used as a soil conditioner in vegetable gardens, flower gardens, lawns and compost piles. Watering plants with manure tea conditions the soil so plant roots can better absorb nutrients. It also provides valuable nutrients, minerals and beneficial microorganisms that supports growing strong and healthy plants.
Manure tea can also be added directly to compost piles to accelerate decomposition.
Manure Tea Simplified
Brewing manure tea was once a messy (and stinky) task which consisted of collecting the manure, composting the manure, mixing it in containers, then straining the liquid to get the valuable tea.
Many people are turned away by the idea of storing and handling manures in order to get the precious tea.
