Have you ever wanted to learn how to run and maintain a small organic farm of animals and vegetables? Learn the ropes of goat milking, chicken care, turkey hatching and raising, vegetable production, soil development and composting, and other sustainable farming techniques.
Farming is a wonderful, fulfilling, dirty, stinky, cold, hot, muscle building, mindful, frustrating, happy, sad, and innovative experience. Processes are always being changed and improved depending on the situation. Animals are not widgets and they have personalities and feelings even if they are part of your food system. You will experience the “zen” of farming as one of the most rewarding and challenging experiences you will ever have. That said, you will also learn to keep yourself safe and healthy as we deal with sometimes unpredictable animals larger and smaller than us. This is NOT about muscle, it’s about ingenuity, leverage, observation, and sometimes remembering that you are the one with thumbs (and the ability to step back and consider a situation before reacting.)
