CowPots are a revolutionary alternative to peat pots, and are PEAT-FREE! They are named after cows for a very specific reason also. That's right, you guessed it... these starter pots are made from manure. Good ol' fashioned cow dung. Their porous walls allow for better penetration from plant roots, versus the usual peat pot and also decompose in a single growing season.


If kept dry, CowPots can be stored for years without damage. Once in use, they usually have a shelf life of anywhere between 10 and 12 weeks.


Check below for all sorts of information on these revolutionary starter pots!

The Cowpots family story

A boy from the Bronx met the farmer’s daughter and they decided to start dairy farming together in 1949.


Today, 7 decades later, the 2nd and 3rd generations of our farm family continue to care for our herd by adopting the newest technologies, including milking robots and collars that function as cow Fitbits. 



Our retail farm market and garden center grows vegetables, flowers and herbs in CowPots for our own field production and live plant sales.

The Cowpots family Farm

We grow all of the for ages to feed our cows supplemented by grains and minerals.
 


We work closely with our dairy nutritionist and veterinarian to ensure that our animals have a complete and balanced diet.
 


Our farm participates in the National Dairy FARM Program, a 3rd party verifiable animal well-being program.

About Fungus & Mold

The natural cycle of decomposition


CowPots are made from manure. They decompose, biodegrade and add value to your garden just like manure does.

Fungus and molds are easily managed. These spores are a natural occurrence, and are not harmful to you or your plant & will disappear when the pot dries out.



With adequate spacing and ability to dry out, CowPots become a less inviting home for fungus and mold (which grow best on moist surfaces).



It is these very same fungi and molds that contribute to the decomposition and biodegradability of CowPots. They really are the Pots you Plant.

growing tip 

When pot walls are dark brown and moist to the touch, they do not need to be watered. When light brown and dry, it’s time to water again.

Do They Work?

The short answer is, YES! CowPots actually break
down in a single growing season! 

How?

The nitrogen that is naturally
in manure serves 2 purposes...

  1. It kick starts the composting process, allowing CowPots to break down once planted.


  2. Nitrogen also attracts micro organisms in the soil to assist in the decomposition process.

Frequently
Asked Questions

Q: How long will my planted CowPot last in a greenhouse setting?


A: Approximately 12 weeks, depending on size. After this suggested timeframe, the pots will become weak, and hold form best if handled when dry.  

Q: Should I use fertilizer in my CowPots?

A: Yes. Use your normal feeding protocol with the fertilizer of your choice. CowPots serve as a soil amendment rather than a nutrient.

Q: Do I need to rip, tear or crush the CowPot before planting in the
ground?

A: NO WAY. Ripping and tearing the pot will harm your plant’s roots. Growing in CowPots eliminates transplant shock because when it’s time to transplant, the whole pot should be placed in the ground. Porous pot walls allow for continued root growth after planting.
