Our farm is home to three kinds of animals:
Donkeys, Sheep and Chickens.
They serve us by helping maintain and improve the health of our soils, and a healthy soil means healthy plants, which means better quality veggies and orchards.
Our animals follow a system of grazing called Holistic Planned Grazing. Which is an improved and more efficient way to regenerate the land using animals and the seasons.
Our animals are treated with respect and love. However, sometimes we need to maintain balance witihin the heard and ease the animals when they start suffering from old age. Life and death are a natural cycle, so when it makes sense and the time comes, the animals are put down.
Apart from the sheep, donekys and chickens we often encounter many birds, hedgehogs, country rats, geckos, toads and wild rabbits that we love to observe from a far.
