Nature has hit us with a sledge hammer and making us analyze our life style
I am reopening the farm in April 2021 and If you are interested in an new experience , permaculture, with hard manual help an off grid lifestyle.fresh veggies from the orchard chickens and eggs, from the yard.
no chemicals or fertilizers are used, only fully organic compost which is made by the resident chickens and neighbors cow manure
When egg laying hens are about 12 months old commercial farms turn them into cat food since they have passed their prime
I normally buy around a thousand and redistribute throughout the community thus allowing them to live out their lives
It is amazing to watch their reactions when they first experience the sun on their feathers To see them actually scratching the dirt and eat their first worm
Keeping them safe is a major obstacle as foxes falcons and many other predators enjoy the free supermarket
We will also concentrate in planting trees so we can play our part in helping Mother Nature’s lungs We use well water and our own harvested wood for water and ambient heating. for 9 months of the year we also use a wood burning "potage'" for cooking.
during summer, helpers that wish to de toxify , are welcomed to partake in the juicing diet, using our organically grown veggies.
