Is this compost 100% organic? There's a lot of nasty bugs out there in compost that I don't want.Thanks for your time.Tina
This is broken down, composted horse manure from a local stable. It is not certified organic, but it is taking a local waste stream and converting into beneficial nutrients for gardens throughout the San Gabriel Valley. Some horses do receive de-worming agents which cause problems with earthworms, but it's not so much of a problem if the horse manure in question is allowed to cure properly. There are nasty bugs in cow manure compost, mainly due to the vast amounts of antibiotics that feedlot cows receive to keep them alive (feeding grains to cattle creates bacterial imbalances in the digestive system of cows, causing massive amounts of e-coli growth). Horses are picky eaters, and probably better treated than cows.
