LILIES OF LIFE ADOPTS CHICKENS
Lilies of Life is an innovative grower with a unique crew. The employees responsible for elimination of the weeds between the flowers are chickens! What…? Chickens? Yes!
Another farmer had chickens for fun/as pets in the greenhouse. When Lilies of Life saw this during a visit they thought: Maybe they could be weeding in between our Liliums? It is not completely new idea, in the old days some tomato growers used chickens as well to clean up rotten and fallen tomatoes. It is a great environmental an animal friendly solution!
HOW DOES IT WORK?
How does it work? The chicken is not interested in the plants, but in the bugs and seeds in the ground. While they search for food they shuffle the ground, which prevents the weeds from growing.
