Who is using CPP?

For the New Zealand home gardener, who wants to grow good healthy vegetables and fruit in their own backyard, CPP is the user-friendly product for you.

Many commercial horticulture and vineyard properties use CPP as an important part of their fertility and plant health management program. Several growers have their own cows and make CPP on site. Read more.

Five thousand years of agriculture were based on cow manure as the source of soil fertility. Now you can have these benefits in your home garden without having the cow.

What is CPP

Cow pat pit is made from cow manure collected from our small herd of Scottish Highland cows grazing on good organic pasture. The fresh manure is mixed with ground eggshell and basalt dust, and inoculated with biodynamic compost preparations, then placed in a pit to undergo aerobic decomposition for three months. The result is CPP, rich brown humus with forest-floor fragrance. It is well described on this site.

How it works

CPP is a general fertilizer for leaf or soil application. It is a concentrated source of all beneficial soil organisms. It promotes plant growth and strengthens plants against pathogenic fungi. For a scientific description of its attributes, presented at the 18th World Congress of Soil Science 2006, click here.
