And would love to educate you too.

    The animals we have are varied Cows, Horses (if you ride), sheep, goats, pigs and many different poultry.

    Organic/Biological methods we use

    I like to use permaculture methods.  We used animals to graze and keep the grass mown for us, and pigs to till the soil.
