Chickens are like a 24hr composting system; what they eat one day drops out the next bursting with nitrogen for the undoubted benefit of your vegetable patch. However, the droppings are acidic and over time this acidity can slowly build up, traditionally the way to treat this was to add lime to the soil.

But now there is a way to neutralise the droppings at source using the catchily named Effective Micro-organisms. The microorganisms are mixed with molasses and bran, allowed to ferment and then dried to produce a stable product. This sweet smelling mix is known as Bokashi and can be fed daily to your chickens at a rate of 5% of the weight of their feed and sprinkled on the dropping tray under the perching bars. Your chickens will love it and just thinking of all those millions of little organisms working away improving the soil has just got to make you feel good too.

Latest Product Reviews For Bokashi Active Bran - 1kg


Excellent - no plastic! -

Don't usually leave reviews but I was so pleased that there was no plastic filling in the box these came in. So often things are pointlessly wrapped in plastic or delivered in a box full of polystyrene. I ordered 3 bags. This bran came in sturdy paper bags and the delivery box is packed with paper. Aesthetically pleasing, delivered on time, no plastic (good for the environment). Perfect. Great job, Omlet. Will buy again

Good product -

If you are committed to recycling and love your garden and want rich soil you will not mind the small effort needed to use Bokashi.

Good product, arrived quickly -

This is the first time I bought bokashi active bran. So far, I am very pleased with it, though I am yet to get a usable compost from it. It works extremely quickly. In less than 2 weeks, my green waste bin with bokashi smelled "pickly", and seems to be breaking down a lot faster than without it. Good price. Will definitely be buying it again.


Really good -

Fab product, the hens love it mixed in with their pellets. Definitely has made their poos smaller and harder. Would highly recommend!
