Farmer John chicken tractor examples
These are some of the ‘chicken tractor’ examples that we used at various projects.
Urban food farm in Industrial Johannesburg. Keyhole (Mandala) gardens created by using chicken tractors. The floor of each chicken tractor is layered with raw organic material such as manure or vegetable off cuts. Chickens do what they do – eat, scratch and poo and in no time prepared the round shaped garden beds ready for planting. The chicken tractor is then moved on to the next area where the process is repeated.
