Happy Sheep Ice Cream and wool.
What is Whole Animal Farming? It is what we feel we do here on our farm. We have never felt comfortable about raising animals just for meat. After practicing permaculture for so many years on a homestead scale, we feel that each species we have here on the farm must perform more than one function. So our sheep not only provide lamb, but also give us wool, and milk for our delicious sheep milk ice cream. Our ducks provide us with eggs, meat, and ducklings. Our chickens give us eggs, manure, and provide the vital service of scratching up the duck area.
We like to raise animals that are balanced in the traits they have. We believe this provides us with a hardier, and healthier animals that is more suited to our climate, and management system.
