How to Use
Roses Sacred Cow!
Put down a 1/4 inch of Sacred Cow™ around the plant. Work it in gently and water. Roses in the ground like to have compost 2-4 times a year. In pots, put down 1/4 inch of Sacred Cow, when the first blooms are about to appear, or if your plant is looking droopy.
Backyards and Gardens Sacred Cow!
Put down 1/4 inch in your flower beds, food gardens, etc. and water in.
Lawns and Golf Courses Sacred Cow!
Apply 1/4” of Sacred Cow every 4 months (under normal conditions) and water in.
Potted Plants Sacred Cow!
Apply 1/4” on top of the soil, then water in. Use a 4 to 1 mix, 4 parts native or bagged organic potting soil to 1 part Sacred Cow.
Seedlings and Starters Sacred Cow!
Use 4 parts native or organic potting soil and one part Sacred Cow.
Mature Trees Sacred Cow!
Unhappy Soil: Apply 1/4 inch around the base of the tree. Gently work in to the existing soil and water in. Repeat once a week for the first month.
Happy Soil: Apply 1/4 inch seasonally. When trees are flowering or fruiting, they really appreciate an extra application of Sacred Cow.

What is Biodynamics?®
Biodynamic agriculture is characterized by an awareness of not only the visible material world, but also influences streaming from the greater cosmos. Biodynamic farming considers the farm as a living organism and regards the maintenance and improvement of soil life as key preserving the soil’s fertility. One of the critical components to maintaining proper soil fertility is quality biodynamic compost. Sacred Cow Compost is not only certified biodynamic by the Demeter Association, but certified organic by the California Department of Agriculture. Read more
What makes Sacred Cow Biodynamic® Compost different?
The difference is two-fold: first is the main ingredient and second the use of biodynamic preparations. Most compost products in the market place use a fair amount of green waste or plant based materials for the main ingredient. Typically, green waste is composed of commercial and residential landscape clippings, prunings, shavings, etc. produced in the landscape maintenance business. Other plant based ingredients may (but not limited to) forest products, straw/hay scraps, wood chips, etc. Most (but not all, check with the product producer) of the green waste materials are subject to commercial and residential landscape protocols which include the use of chemicals, pesticides, herbicides, etc. Most of the straw and hay scraps are conventionally produced. Again these products are exposed to chemical fertility and pesticides, herbicides, etc. Many of the commercial composts in the marketplace are 100% green waste or plant based sourced. Read more
