When we bought the farm in 2010 we had no idea it would grow and evolve into what it is now. We added a few new animals each year trying out what would be the best fit for us and our life.
We run a herd of cow calf pairs as well as having a couple of milk cows for our family’s milk. We now use our cows to repair the land that has previously been neglected for too many years.
Our pigs are used as tools to help us create more graze able land instead of heavy equipment. We clear an area then put the pigs in to root up all the roots and runners from the poplar trees.
We raise our own Chickens for eggs, as well as meat birds in the summer. The laying hens have become a favorite with our children and the can usually be found in the coop or with a chicken under their arm.
