Green Beans

(All the poop on alpaca poop....)

Alpaca manure consists of small, oval droppings resembling beans and are known as "Green Beans" within the alpaca breeding industry. With three stomachs to process food, the alpaca diet of grass, hay, vitamins, minerals, and fresh water moves efficiently through from product to poop.

Green Beans are a natural source of sloooooooow releasing nitrogen, phosphorus, potassium/potash-all in small percentages - so there is no problem burning or over fertilization.
