Compost elaboration at Mas Rajols Farm

Volterra is making an organic compost at Mas Rajols Farm in Tavertet, Catalonia. The main ingredients of this compost are: manure from cows raised in an ecological way, remaining substrate of the mushroom cultivation of the company Myco Life S.L. and biochar made by our company from the selective pruning of the surrounding forests, from which this wood is removed to prevent forest fires.

These ingredients, mixed with very diverse types of organic matter, result in an extremely nutrient-rich compost, which does not use chemical compounds and which, in addition to its high mineral density, provides structure to the soil, promoting the emergence of beneficial microorganisms for the crops, which find a perfect habitat in the porosity of biochar, an element that also contributes to conserving soil moisture.
