Sheep (2007-2014)

2014 was the last year with Sheep on our Farm.

While sheep have played an important role in recycling nutrients and eating grass on our farm, we have found their management increasingly complicated and with such high demand for our vegetables we are finding we cannot commit the required resources to do as good a job as we would like.  Combined with the challenge of getting them processed at a licenced facility on our terms we have found that sheep have added too much stress to our year.  In lieu of sheep we will bring in more mulch (organic matter) for our vegetables and compost vegetable waste.
