Today we took delivery of our new muck spreader, well its not exactly new but it’s certainly fit for purpose.
Thank you Henry and Ken at Stretton Agri-Machinery (http://www.stretton-agri-machinery.co.uk/) for helping us out, for finding a suitable budget spreader, refurbishing it, delivering it to us and giving us a lesson in muck spreading!
Having 10 pigs, 18 ponies and over 200 poultry, not to mention the guinea pigs and rabbits, we generate a huge amount of waste which we compost. We fill a tipper trailer every two days, thats a lot of poo!
The charity has only a limited budget, so we need to make every hard “fund-raised” penny go that extra mile, so we have bought a muck spreader for less that we would pay, to have the muck heap moved.
Now not only can we now move our muck, but we can also organically fertilise our fields, particularly the hay field where we can save over £3,000 on our annual hay bill, by producing much of it ourselves.
We have dipped into our reserves to buy this ready to fertilise the land once it dries out, please help us top up the funds and raise funds for a post rammer, we have loads of fencing to erect in the Summer, once we have raised enough funds.
