We raise sheep and cattle without the use of chemical fertilizers,
pesticides, or herbicides. We use a system of controlled grazing
as much as is feasible, and electrified fence netting helps us with
predator control. We try to follow a policy of coexistence with the
rest of the creatures in our environment.
The sheep and cattle graze and browse during the spring, summer, and fall.
We raise the hay that sustains them during the winter months. This season,
we will have lambs in March and will bring the sheep into covered quarters
before that time. We will shear them by hand and they will remain inside
until after the lambing season.
White faced crossbred ewes and crossbred Shorthorn/Red Devon heifers are available
for sale. The sheep progressed through the Federal voluntary scrapie reduction
program and are free of hoof rot and sore mouth. They are never off the farm.
