How to Make Cow Manure Tea

Posted on Jul 30 2010 - 3:19am by Mike Lieberman

I am making cow manure tea to use as a soil amendment in my container garden.

I’m brewing cow manure tea from Authentic Haven Brand.

The brewing process will take 1-3 days to complete. You’ll need the following:

  • One five-gallon container filled with water
  • Bag of cow manure tea bag
  • Towel or cloth to keep the bugs out

You just need to drop the tea bag into the bucket of water and let it steep for 1-3 days until it looks golden brown. Put a cloth over the top of it if you are keeping it outside to keep the bugs out.
