We pile the manure from the winter into a pile, and in the Spring local farmers come to take it and spread it over their gardens and some crops. It's good stuff. We are still giving some of the manure away, but have decided this Spring to flatten the top of the manure mountain, put some grass seed on it and keep it for the sheep to climb up on, they seem to love it. The chickens like it too, and it gives he farm a certain aesthetic that is, well, maybe unique. Maria is thinking of planting some pumpkin Ivy there.
