Experience description:

I have been raising livestock for the past 25 years. We make most of our own hay, and use only organically certifiable practices. We currently raid beef lambs and pigs, beef being the main focus. We are looking for more hay and pasture land, so we can graze more of the year, and expand our cow herd.
