Mike Rowe of Dirty Jobs found himself learning how to make cow pots by creator, Matt Freund, a dairy farmer in Northwestern Connecticut. The following video clip shows only part of the process which is long and arduous, not to mention dirty and stinky.
So what are Cow Pots?
They are pots made out of manure collected from cows at Freund's Farm. As the manure has gone a drying and composting process, the pots created do not smell and are great fertiliser for plants. Just dig a hole in your garden and push pots and plants right in to grow.
