Egg Shell Fertilizer
When life gives you cracked eggs, what do you do? Make egg shell fertilizer!
We sell clean dry crushed egg shells as an excellent garden fertilizer in 3 lb bags right here at the farm. This natural, slow-releasing organic source of calcium carbonate is great on heavy feeding perennials and vegetable plants like tomatoes and sweet peppers.
It's also terrific for repelling slugs and snails that love to raid your hostas and peonies. (It's too sharp for their feet! Ha ha!)
Each bag contains over 350 eggs shells (that's a lot of eggs, trust us!) and sells for $12.50 per bag.
Need a lot of natural fertilizer for your organic garden? Contact us; we'll make bigger bags for you!
