You want the manure well ripened - at least 2 years - but this 2 year period could be a nursery for nitrogen fixing trees/bushes, comfrey, or other plants that were not meant for human consumption. Your manure would be growing large amounts of biomass that serve other purposes on your property. While you were minimizing the labor input, you would also be maximizing the beneficial output at the same time.
