We segment our paddocks into strips and move the cattle daily to ensure they get the freshest tips of the grasses they like best. Regular, light trimming with long resting periods in between grazing causes the most beneficial (and tasty) grasses within the pasture to spread and strengthen, which also helps to crowd out any weeds completely naturally. The quality of our pasture has improved dramatically since using this method and it’s amazing how visibly clean and lush the fields are as a result. #cellgrazing #holisticfarming #sustainableagriculture #regenerativeagriculture #byronbayhinterland

I was going through my photo's and I found this picture of when I planted 150 Bush Beans, in the morning, by myself, because I didn't want to wait for Cameron (I should have waited for Cameron i was very lonely) but I wanted to practice my editing and see if I could brighten this picture up a little bit. I hope I did ok the second photo is the original. It Just felt kind of dull to me. #compactfarming #sustainableagriculture #metafarming #marketgarden #marketgardener #HWPO #hardworkpaysoff #canon #canonphotography #photography

We’ve been working hard on a stove designated prototype to heat the greenhouse as the temps drop. We decided to go with this design based on a 30 gallon drum and it’s suited for burning scrap wood and split logs to keep the plants in the greenhouse from freezing at night. This is the first burn and next will be a cleaning and painting. Looking forward to seeing how it performs in the greenhouse! #greenhouse #greenhouselife #stove #woodstove #heating #organicproduce #growing #growers #sustainableagriculture #orionapothecary

How does sustainable grazing benefit the environment? “Historic grazing in West Marin — first by native grazers and more recently by livestock — has been shown to help maintain grassland habitat and conserve native plant and animal species. When we talk about sustainability, we mean more than organic or pasture-raised. Sustainable agriculture conserves natural resources, is profitable over the long term and benefits the local community.” ~Jamison Watts, Director, Marin Agricultural Land Trust.

Running a farm requires a myriad of skills - animal husbandry, mechanics, carpentry, fencing, biology, soil science to name a few. It also requires copious amounts of determination and hard work as well as compassion and empathy for the 1700-odd animals on our two farms. Luckily for us we have Coops on the DOB team, he possesses all these qualities and believes in the value of producing nutritious food in a sustainable farming system. It also helps that he loves a good steak..... #dandaraganorganicbeef #beef #certifiedorganic #organic #grassfed #grassfinished #lifeonthefarm #buywesteatbest #localfarmer #carotelferphotographer #knowyourfarmer #sustainableagriculture #health #paleo #knowyourfood #perthfood

So Me, Xavier, and Cameron decided to go into the microgreens business until we all go our separate ways into the next chapter of our lives. But in the meantime we are going to start growing Microgreens to sell at the Farmers Market and hopefully some Restaurants. The business will be called "Cozy Bear X Sow Good Microgreens" yes its a long name but it has everyone on interest in it. We are going to do some experimenting right now to see which is the best way to grow Microgreens but hopefully by the start of next year everything will be up and running. #microgreens 🌱 #microgreensfarm #microgreens #compactfarming #sustainableagriculture #metafarming #marketgarden #marketgardener #HWPO #hardworkpaysoff #canon #canonphotography #photography

U.S. hemp growing climbed to over 25,000 acres last year, an increase of 163% over 2016. Some of the top #hemp growing states include #Oregon , #Kentucky and, of course, long time industry leader #Colorado. But other states are expanding fast. If hemp acreage is growing this quickly now, imagine what’s possible with total legalization? #hempgrams Read more on our website at bit.ly/hempacreage2017

Sometimes the cooking bug gets me stuck in the kitchen. I love to experiment with gluten free baked goods and this time it was a crust for a savoury tart. I love to include apples with root vegetables and in this case it was a marriage with kohlrabi and onions. Of course every dish in our household needs to be crowned with herbs and this tart was asking for sage. My cooking is getting more and more inspired by the seasons and right now root vegetables rule. . . . #thymeagaingardens #farmlife #smallfarm #womenfarmers #kohlrabi #rootvegetables #farmtotable #savourygalette #fromtheland #organicfarming #permaculture #sustainableagriculture #eatseasonal #cultivatingcommunity #celebratingtheharvest #feedingpeople #princeedwardcounty #countylife

Food Manager Todd Rothe was out farmin' leaves last week in order "to tame the funky fumes from the compost machine," said his right hand man & photographer @grassfedsass #NorthlandCollege composts about 96,000 pounds of food waste + organic material like leaves and wood shavings each year. That 96K pounds of waste turns into 32K pounds of black, rich soil that goes back into the ground to produce more food. 🍂 .⠀ FYI Todd ( @rothesrrfarm ) will be teaching Food Production, a new course being offered next year as part of the new #sustainableag minor. ⠀ ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #sustainableagriculture #compost #sustainability #greencolleges #sustainablecollege

Vannak hideg, szeles napok, amikor nem jó kint lenni a kertben. Amikor az ember lánya csak kuckózna anyukája sütijével meg a horgolásával és nem a hideg földben turkálna. Amikor nézi az órát, és drukkol, hogy legyen már vége a napnak. Amikor "a csoda sem csoda". Igen, nem minden nap cgyönyörűség meg élvezet a kertben sem. De! egyrészt ilyenkor jó arra gondolni, hogy az esetek 90%-ában meg mégis milyen eszméletlenül jó. :) Másrészt, amikor az ember hagyja magának, hogy egy kicsit rossz legyen, akkor azért elég könnyű rájönni, hogy nem is annyira az. ;) Harmadrészt meg ha tényleg rossz, akkor hadd legyen rossz. Legalább legközelebb még jobb lesz, amikor jó. :) Úgyhogy én még mindig #szeretemazéletem és #szeretemamunkám :) #farming #farmtofork #farmlife #zöldségközösség #organicfarming #sustainability #sustainableagriculture #ilovemylife #ilovemywork #knowyourfarmer #knowyourfood #organic

Yesterday I went to The Javits Center with my Urban Ecosystems class, and it was by far my favorite trip so far. I was surprised to learn how sustainable it was. I didn’t even know there was rooftop gardens- and how well the entire building is transitioning to be more sustainable. The garden is over 6 acres, offering permeable surface for rain to go, resulting in it only needing to be deliberately watered twice a year. The tiles on the rooftop are even left without cement so water can drip down to be stored for sustainable irrigation. There are also 9 beehives among the rooftop, which host 60k bees each in the summertime, and 20k around different times of the year. When honey is harvested, it is supplemented with sugar water to keep bees happy. I was so amazed by their great design, the building even windows with gray dots being implemented to forewarn birds and keep them from crashing into the building. Next time you go to an event here, keep their good intent in mind. 🏠🌱 #bees #rooftopgardens #sustainableagriculture #sustainability #javitscenter

I’ve spent the last 15 years chasing down the farm to fork movement ... now ... however... thanks to @farmfreshtoyou... the movement comes to me.... as in truly straight to my door. How can simple organic artisan eats inspire such exaggerative euphoria you ask ? Perhaps it’s time to really get to know Miss HealthDoll ... . . Over 20 years ago ..... in a small tumbleweed filled chicken coop town... a people .... a people which included centenarians ..... working families , their 2.5 children, and babies .... were vehemently and irreparable attacked. This was ... with an ungovernable tear in my eye .... my little town. . . The attack did not come by sword or fleet. Nor did it slay with the brawny curve of a rifle’s barrel ... bomb .... or any other concrete creation one thinks of in such matters. Our assailants of such assault .... were none other than the sycophant government, city, and school officials who sold our souls to the pockets of Big Ag and Biotech. . . While I will one day write the book of a lifetime about my experience thereafter ... for brevity’s sake .... after months upon months of mass contamination of everything from glyphosate to malathion ... I sat back ... and watched a span of generations come down with ailments over night. Asthma and allergies were for the lucky ones. Cancer for the less fortunate ..... But some ..... some lost their battle without a fighting chance to even see the backstabbing hand that was to inflict their final blow .... . Et tu , Biotech? . After months of inexplicable health complications ... my teenage teammate hit a homerun during softball practice ... rounded the bases .... touched home plate .... and forever collapsed. She was rushed to the ER.... but with no pulse, ability to breathe on her own , or sign of brain activity .... #22 Chrissy Garavito was removed from life support and perished at the age of just 16 years old ..... Cause of death as indicated by Loma Linda University ...”fatal heart arrhythmia due to nerve poisoning pesticides.” . . To all my critics .... is my high school teammate’s obituary and death certificate proof enough ? Does it sufficiently meet the burden ... (continued in comments)

Our lovely intern, @mickarose , has been spending a lot of time with the piggies and she decided that the breeders, at least, need names. Our breeder goats have names and there’s a lot more of them! . So, meet Olivia, Harriet and Helen! 😂🐷😂 . We currently have three other proven sows (Bridget, Agnes and Charlotte if you want to know 😉) and we’ll probably keep 2-3 gilts back from the spring litters for a total of 9 sows. . These three had their first litters together in May and now we’re waiting to rebreed them because our huge boar is about to be “retired,” and they’re going to have simultaneous dates with the two new boars we’re keeping. . In the mean time, they’ve gone back into heat and are passing the time by regularly humping each other. 🤷🏼‍♀️ . . . . . . #sows #mamapigs #piglife #rotationalgrazing #happypigs #pasturedpigs #forestraisedpork #pasturedpork #berkshirepigs #herefordpigs #heritagebreeds #forest #woods #farming #farmlife #farrowtofinish #farmanimals #piggy #pig #pigsofig #farmpigs #pigsofinstagram #instapig #oinkers #sustainablefarming #regenerativeagriculture #sustainableagriculture #iamcountryside #youngfarmers #iamamodernfarmer

Raising turkeys is one enterprise I never thought I’d undertake. I had a bad experience with a crusty old Tom when I was a kid and I’d rather have ham during the holidays. . . But these guys have actually been a lot of fun. While I wouldn’t call them intelligent they are certainly inquisitive and to a point perceptive. In honor of @wildershomestead beautiful Tom #Percy I call them all Percy and it’s become their feed call. I am enjoying them more than the broilers! And really more than the layers too. . . . I will definitely be stepping up my turkey game next year, and with the expert advice of David @oakridgefarms2 will most likely do more than just #thanksgiving birds.
