Livestock

Livestock are an integral part of our farming system. We currently raise chickens for meat, geese for meat, chickens for egg production and more recently, pigs. All stock are kept on free range in order for them to contribute to the ‘whole system’ and of course to provide the animals with a high standard of living. We also find that giving animals free range and the chance to behave naturally drastically reduces diseases commonly found in conventional exploitative animal production systems.  This reduces our production costs. All of our housing for livestock is moveable, this also helps us to reduce disease build up. With livestock, as with crop production, the emphasis is on prevention. Good husbandry and continual observation are key. Raising happy/healthy animals is really a pleasure.
