Try a livery yard or riding school or private ladies with horses offer to empty it for them, I build simple block 3 sided ones on concrete bases then empty them every 6 months or so. But private ppl with 2/3 horses ponies bedding on straw is what you want. Normally first bit is to fresh all straw etc but the bottom bit is well rotted black sludge.

I know a few ppl who let gardeners come with bags and take it. If you had tipper etc you could collect and pile it at allotment and leave it 6 months be good stuff, it's easy light stuff to shovel

i can get fresh all day long but as you correctly say its the black gold is where its at
problem is all the horsey places tend to dump the straw manure down the end of their field so its never easy to access without a 4WD
had some rocking spuds last year but used 5 cabstar full of manure
i dont know how they get veg in the shops,there is that much against ya when you are growing,slugs,mice,foxes(yes foxes eat veg when the notion takes them) pigeons,magpies,black-green-white fly, aphids, click beetles,moasaic virus,blight, earwigs, woodlice,wireworm (my personal nemesis)

i read in the paper last week that an allotment saves you 1500 quid a year on shopping!!!
rubbish
last year had maybe 100lb spuds  ,50 lb runner beans,25 cabbages,15lb parsnips, 100 carrots,

swedes failed,cauli failed, 10 lb brussells ,gooseberries,redcurrants,apples,pears,blackcurrants, and raspberries  total 3 raspberries :(

10 corn on the cob, 4 pumpkins,15 courgettes,10 lb french beans,

mange tout failed,sunflowers all seeds eaten by mice
50lb of onions and 100 garlic

now if this is all the lout family had to eat last year  I wouldn't be anywhere near my career heaviest weight of 18 stone

believe it or not paul i was only 4 stone when i went up to senior school,the only sport i did well at, at school was cross country running :O
the one thing i do find is that with a bit of weight behind you digging is easy,when i started in the building game a fork  seemed like the enemy,now its just like an extension to my arm and leg

however looking to the future 18 st is way too heavy for 5'10"
the problem is what can you eat at work that isnt fattening and fills you up?
i suppose less is the obvious answer
cheers LLL :)
