Vermont Poultry Grit for Chickens, Turkeys, and Other Poultry
Made on the East Coast, Vermont Poultry Grit aids digestion in poultry by helping grind up food. Our granite is sourced from the world-renowned Rock of Ages Quarry in Graniteville, Vermont. We repurpose unused blocks of granite and create useful products. Your poultry will be feeding on the finest granite the world has to offer.
Vermont Poultry Grit can be used as a standalone product or combined with feed.

Off-Label Uses in Gardening
As an off-label use, some gardeners have added Starter granite grit to topsoil to create homemade seed starter potting mixes and Grower granite grit to topsoil to create homemade potting mixes for perennials, succulents, and other plants. In general, granite is longer lasting than vermiculite while providing similar benefits, like moisture retention.
When used as a decorative accent, the gray color provides a handsome, modern look that looks more natural than white quartzite. The color may vary and will likely include variations, like black, red, and orange.
