Kick start

Chicken manure 05 06 002.jpg

We have hundreds of very slow growing vines, roots intertwined with rocks, at the crest of the mountain ridges. More than 50% of some of these soils is shale stone. We want all of the vines in a single block to ripen their grapes to the same level at the same time.
We have decided to add some organic stimulus to help these weaker vines catch up (get their roots down deeper). And we’re hoping that free range chicken droppings will help.
The floors in the pens in our neighbour’s chicken farm are elevated by annual accumulation. So we’re helping him as we provide an energy boost to the battling vines.
