Activated and Non activated Biochars,
for soil regeneration.
Longley Organic Farm's activated and non-activated biochars are now available in a range of grades suitable for many applications.
All of our biochars are locally made using traditional style Japanese cone kilns, pyrolised at temperatures of 500-700oC, for a clean burn, ensuring the integrity of the carbon (platelet) product and removal of resins and volatiles.
All plant material used is carefully selected ensuring soil regenerative outcomes.
Our activated biochars are activated with ‘Macroboost’, locally produced Effective Microorganisms (E.M.) and Marrawah liquid Bull Kelp, ensuring a truly Tasmanian quality product for the consumer.
