- Is All-Natural Liquid Rabbit Tea Fertilizer Safe? Our fertilizer is extremely inert. So inert in fact, that many of our animals on the farm will lick the fertilizer when it spills and they're not the only ones! The rabbits themselves have to eat their own pellets as part of their diet which actually helps them! Because the fertilizer is inert, it is one of the few "cold fertilizers" out there. Meaning you can spray it on your soil and plants without burning them. This is one of the reasons you don't need a license to spray our fertilizer on your land.
However, if you plan to use the fertilizer on gardens or any edible plants, discontinue use 90 to 120 days before harvest. Do not spray directly on any vegetables or fruits.
- Does the Fertilizer Smell?We don't think so! Because rabbit pellets are so inert, there's little smell associated with our fertilizer. Which makes convincing the kids to spray it around much easier!
- How Much Fertilizer Will I Need to Cover My Land? We recommend a 1 gallon of fertilizer to 5 gallons of water dilution rate and using a 10 gallon to an acre application rate it comes out to 1.7 gallons of fertilizer per acre.
For example: 50 Gallons of fertilizer will cover approximately 30 acres of pasture, at a cost of less than $11.00 per acre. This is according to the suggested 1 gallon of fertilizer to 5 gallons of water, and a 10 gallon per acre application rate.
- How Much Should I Dilute My Fertilizer? For the most cost-effective rate we recommend a dilution ratio of 1 gallon of fertilizer to 5 gallons of water. This will give you a ready-to-spray fertilizer for your lawn, garden, or pasture.
- What Kind of Water Should I Use to Dilute My Fertilizer?
We recommend well water, untreated pond water, or rainwater with NO chlorine to dilute your fertilizer. If you are using city or county water with chlorine, you need to put your water into your sprayer or tank and leave the lid off for 24 hours before adding the fertilizer. This will allow the chlorine to dissipate out of the water.
- What if I Don't Want to Dilute My Fertilizer? That's okay! Our fertilizer can be used less diluted or even un-diluted without any fear of burning your soil, plants, lawn, garden, or pasture.
- How Much Fertilizer Can I Buy? You can buy as much or as little fertilizer as you need! The price for our liquid fertilizer remains even at $6.00 a gallon for any amount. The price for our dry fertilizer is $12 a pound, if you purchase 50-100 pounds the price is $11 a pound, and if you purchase a 100 pounds or more the price is $10 a pound.

- Can I Bring My Own Container? Absolutely! You can bring your own containers of any size if they're clean and have had no chemicals, herbicide, or anti-microbial stored in them previously. We will fill it at no additional cost. The fertilizer can be used straight or diluted.
- How Soon Should I Use My Fertilizer? Our liquid fertilizer once purchased from us has a 48hr shelf life without aeration. You can however keep it up to five days with aeration if you have or purchase air-stones, aquarium pumps, or aerators. Our dry fertilizer does not have a shelf life, so you can store it and use as needed.
- How Should I Store My Fertilizer if I Don't Want to Use It Right Away? We do not recommend storing the liquid fertilizer without aeration. Without aeration you only have 48hrs to apply after purchasing. However, if you need more time after you're purchase, you can use an air-stone, aquarium pump, or another kind of aeration device available to keep the liquid fertilizer for up to five days. We also recommend that if you do have to store the fertilizer, place it in a cool shady place and to take the lid or cap off the container until ready to use. For our dry fertilizer, make sure to store it in a dry area and it can be stored as long as needed.
- What If I Want to Store My Liquid Fertilizer Longer Than 5 Days? To store your liquid fertilizer for more than 48hrs you'll need an air stone, aquarium pump, or another aeration device available. This will help to aerate the fertilizer and keep it viable. When using fertilizer that has been stored for more than 48 hours after purchasing from us, add 1 cup of unsulfured molasses to 50 gallons of fertilizer as you are putting it in your sprayer and applying. Do not add molasses to fertilizer that is being stored or not being applied right away.
- Do I Need a License to Use This Fertilizer?No license necessary! Since our liquid and dry fertilizer is all-natural, you can apply either one without having to get a license.
- How Far in Advance Do I Need to Order? We ask our customers to order our liquid fertilizer 4-5 days in advance of when they would like to pick up. Our liquid fertilizer is made to order and with the 48hr hour shelf life without aeration, we want to ensure that you get the liquid fertilizer as fresh as possible when you come to pick it up.
