Manure

As a city farm we produce lots of animal waste which goes onto our muck heap. This then rots down for about a year, where it is turned into wonderful well-rotted manure which is perfect for adding fertility to your garden.

This manure is available for you to use in your gardens, balconies and allotments, as well as for community projects and more.

We do not use any pesticides or fertilisers here at the Farm. Our animal waste is just mixed with hay and straw.

 

Purchasing manure

We sell small bags via our farm shop, which is open Monday – Saturday from 10am-1pm and 2pm-4pm. If you’re after more than one bag, please do get in touch in advance so we can ensure enough is bagged up ready for you.

 

Are you based in Southwark or Lewisham?

If you are based in Southwark or Lewisham you can access our manure for your community garden, organisation or allotment. This involves us working with a local haulier company who come with an eight wheel grab lorry to collect the manure and deliver it. The company can do a maximum of two deliveries at a time, which means to make the trips viable we need to drop off a minimum of six ton bags per location. The lorry can take fifteen ton bags per delivery. Our ton bags of manure are priced at £35 per bag.

If you can take a minimum of six ton bags and your site has access for a large vehicle to drop off, please do get in touch with us via the Contact us page.

Please be aware someone will need to be onsite to meet the driver when they deliver the bags. We are a small staff team who rely on the help of many of our volunteers to get the manure ready to go out to the community so you will need to be flexible on delivery dates.
