The Jora Compost Tumbler JK125 Also Called Little Pig

We can't believe how quick and efficient this composter is. The Joraform Compost Tumbler 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 1.5kgs daily.
The "Little Pig" digester is like a large mechanical stomach that literally digests the organic matter you feed it.
A fully insulated, 95cm x 83cm  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 Little 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 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.

This feels like a prototype or Mark 1, which means that it does take an effort and quite a long time to get it all assembled. But it is robust when you get it done. This may be Swedish and flatpack but it is not like putting together an IKEA product! Thank goodness for Niall's excellent video. My brother and I assembled the composter following the step by step instructions on youtube. And it still took a couple of hours. Is it worth it? Well we put in quite a bit of kitchen scraps over several days, then we have been away for about three weeks. I opened the compartment this morning to reveal a steaming, brown mixture - a complete transformation. Smelly, but very effective!

It took my husband 3 hours to assemble and screwing up the sides left hands blistered Maybe use an electric screwdriver!! However it does look very impressive and we look forward to using it !

Delivery from quickcrop was really fast. Assembly will take about an hour, possible to do on your own but easier to do with 2 people.Material is of good quality which is reassuring given the price. Great size, fits neatly even in a small garden.

The waste in our composted is very sludgy. How can we make it dryer?
Answered by Niall
on January 15th, 2018
You need to add more Brown waste to get the right mix. Shredded up cardboard or paper. Garden leaves or wood pellets will do the trick.

We have this for last month! Nothing seemed to be happening at first but this week there was loads of steam! It seems to be breaking everything down really well but when we open it, it does smell. Is this normal as meat etc has gone in? It looks black and sludgy. When is it ready, find it hard to locate much info on using the little pig! Thanks Rozz

Hi Rozz. We will have a video ready around late November on how best to use the Pigs. In relation to smell first. You need to add more carbon such shredded paper or cardboard or wood pellets. This will bring the contents back to a more compost like material. Also once the heat starts to be generated which it clearly is now i would turn it roughly every 2/3 days.
Asked By Moira Lonergan

I am finding the use of 'little pig' somewhat difficult. We are a two person household so the amount of household waste is small. I supplement this with some garden waste, brown and white paper, cardboard from centre of toilet rolls, egg cartons, egg shells and also some wood chips. The temperature is raised but nothing like those expected. Have you any more advice or leaflets?
Answered by Andrew
on September 04th, 2017
Hi Moira. There is no leaflet on how to best use these units but we will be doing a video on this in the coming weeks which should help. In the meantime if you stick to the broad principal of a third kitchen waste, a third garden waste and a third brown waste (cardboard, paper, shredded wood or clippings etc)
Asked By Moira Lonergan
on June 26th, 2017
Is this composter suitable for composting general garden waste?
Answered by Andrew
on June 27th, 2017
Hi Moira. Yes. The Joraform will take almost any waste apart from bones but everything else from the kitchen or garden is perfectly fine.
Asked By Moira Lonergan
on June 21st, 2017
Does above Compost Tumbler need to be in a sunny position or may it be placed in a duller area in garden?
Answered by Andrew
on June 22nd, 2017
Hi Moira. The compost bin will work fine in a shaded area of the garden. The heat is inside is generated by the bacteria breaking down the waste and is kept in by the insulation. Outside temperature does make a difference but this is more seasonal variations rather than sun and shade.
Asked By Chris O'Dell

Your photograph of this device shows it free standing on a metal support, but in the text you say it bolts to the side of the house, which would not be suitable for me as I would need it to be free standing. Which is correct?
Answered by Andrew
on March 06th, 2017
Hi Chris. You can actually do either. It comes with the Free standing frame
Asked By jackie smyth
on July 26th, 2016
interested in this for composting household waste, 3 adults in the house, would you think the small one would be suitable for us
Answered by Andrew
on July 27th, 2016
Hi Jackie. The JK 125 compost bin will be ideal for 3 adults. Make sure you keep adding waste every day to keep the heat up, you will be unlikely to keep up with it as it composts so quickly. I hope this helps. Andrew
Asked By Catriona Murphy
on June 03rd, 2016
Can I put all cooked scraps into it or are there some items that should not added? Catriona
Answered by Andrew
on June 08th, 2016
Hi Catriona. Great question. You can put almost any cooked foods in the Joraform composters as the heat generated breaks down the waste very quickly. Bones might be the only thing i would avoid but everything else is good.
Asked By Helen McCarthy
on January 26th, 2016
Hi guys, just watched the video. What gets added in with the food waste?
Answered by Andrew
on January 27th, 2016
Thank you for your question Helen. You can add wood pellets but to be honest if you tear up waste cardboard and paper from the house you won't need to add anything other than your garden and kitchen waste.
Asked By Pat.Doody
on January 26th, 2016
Does it come assembled?
Answered by Andrew
on January 26th, 2016
Thanks for the question Pat. No it doesn't come assembled however it comes in two boxes and the sides are already assembled so it literally takes half an hour to build one including the frame.
