I get really excited about rabbit manure because it is the best manure for organic gardens! It will increase poor soil by improving the soil structure and by improving the life cycle of the beneficial micro-organisms in the soil. Rabbit manure is packed with nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium, and minerals. It is also loaded with lots of micro-nutrients, and many other beneficial trace elements such as calcium, magnesium, boron, zinc, manganese, sulfur, copper, and cobalt (to name a few). Micro-nutrients (along with other organic matter present in rabbit manure) helps improve soil tithe, drainage, and moisture retention, as well as the friable texture of some soils. Rabbit manure is considered a “cold manure” which means it does not need to be composted before adding to plants and will not burn your plants when added directly to the garden. Finally, as you can see from the chart below, rabbit manure really shines in its N-P-K values as compared to other farm manures.

Because rabbit manure is dry, odorless, and in pellet form, it is suitable for direct use in the garden. It is considered a “cold-manure”, and can be used as a topdressing or mulch around plants, or worked into the soil directly under transplants. It can be applied any time of the year. It can help give your plants a boost during the growing season or can act as a storehouse of nutrients when applied in the late fall or winter. The berries are a time-released capsule of goodness for your soil. In addition, composted rabbit manure is an excellent compost activator. Adding even a small bucket of this mix every now and then will put your compost in nitrogen heaven, and greatly accelerate the break-down rates.
You will receive one full box, 11 x 81/2 x 51/2 cubic inches of fresh rabbit manure for $25.00. Rabbit manure varies in weight. If it is not dried, or partially dried, it will weigh more than manure that is very dried. This is why we do not sell by weight. Please know that very small bits of fur or wood shaving may be mixed amongst your berries. This is unavoidable!
