and the chickens

Piggies enjoying their fresh grass

Grass-fed on organic pastures

Despite the drought this summer, our use of rotational grazing has kept the sheep happy in fresh grass. The chickens and pigs also thrive on being outdoors although both chickens and pigs are also fed organic grain from Homestead Organics. These organic grains are completely free of pesticide residue and are not genetically modified.
Needless to say, the drought has pushed up grain prices so our feed is much more expensive than it was at the beginning of the summer.
