The Jora rotary composter is also known by its technical name JK270, or more affectionately as 'Big Pig'. We can't believe how quick and efficient this composter is. It takes up very little room and composts so fast you struggle to keep it full. No rodent problems or strong smells, fits easily in a small garden. You can even add cooked meat and fish waste! This unique digester is a home composting system that will recycle household food waste and garden waste of up to 2.5kgs daily. No assembly required as we take care of that for you.


The "Big Pig" digester is like a large mechanical stomach that literally digests the organic matter you feed it.
A fully insulated, 116cm x 88.6cm  bin that bolts on to the side of your house, it’s clean,
self-contained, and it turns food waste into rich compost faster than the average household can fill it.

The Big Pig is so well insulated that the internal temperature reaches around 75 degrees centigrade. At that kind of temperature the micro-organisms work so fast that you can almost see the food breaking down before your eyes

Composting
Composting occurs at temperature intervals of+2 to +78C. Different micro-organisms work at different temperature intervals. Higher temperatures give a higher degree of hygienic composting, and are, therefore, more favourable.With equal moisture distribution and oxygen configuration in the Little Pig unit, plus with continued addition of waste, the temperature will rise to 65-75C. You don't have to buy a thermometer, as you will see the steam rising from the contents. In fact, it can get too hot to bury your hand in it - should you wish to do so!

Two Compartments for Maximum Results
The digester is divided into two compartments. When the first compartment is full (approx. 6 weeks) it is covered with a metal plate (provided). When the second compartment is full the first can be emptied of its’ finished compost.

Hi I have just bought the Big Pig from you and I was wondering if dry me shavings would be ok as my carbon source .I use it for horse bedding so I have easy access to it in bulk rather than having to buy wood pellets which are expensive .thanks

Hi Isabelle Provided they are not to big then yes they will work perfectly. It may take 2 passes through the composter for them to break down fully but they will be fine as part of the compost mix once they go out in to the garden Niall Quickcrop
