What is in Harmony and Symphony Fertilizer: The Harmony and Symphony 5-4-3 fertilizer that we sell comes from a family owned and operated egg laying poultry farm in New York. The Symphony 5-4-3 is from USDA Organic Layers. Even though the Harmony fertilizer is not produced from the composted manure of organic chickens, we consider it far better than most of the poultry based products sold as fertilizer on the market today. Harmony birds are layers, unlike other poultry manure based fertilizers, which are usually from broilers. Commercial broiler operations tend to be fed large quantities of nasty supplements, antibiotics and hormones. The NY. farm also raises a lot of their own organic grains for their operation. In general, we feel much better about purchasing, selling and using a product produced by farmers that have a clear understanding about raising crops and animals in an ecological and humane way.
