Grass Farming

The Evening Graze

Evening are wonderful.  The heat of the day begins to relent, and the animals come out of their shade shelters, ready to graze.  I love opening up a fresh paddock for the goats and sheep each evening.

Central PA Grassfed Lamb & GoatGrass is the sweetest and most nutrient dense right at sunset after converting sunlight into sugars all day (and consequently is at its lowest nutrition at dawn after “starving” all night without the sun).  Watching my darlings graze is like therapy; the stress of the day melts away as I watch them enjoy their solar powered meal.

The two youngest of the baby goats spend their evenings playing.  Their energy  releases like a spring, and these two hardly stop long enough for me to get a decent picture.  Some young friends of mine named them Freddie and Nancy.  Cute!

The Pastured Broilers Are Growing

 

Pastured Chicken Sunbury Pa Northumberland County

Our meat chickens love being on pasture!  You should see how they gobble down the grass each morning after we move their shelters to a fresh square of pasture.

The grass is growing faster than the chickens can keep up with it.  Since meat chickens don’t like tall grass, we are grazing the grass shorter in front of the shelters with the goats and sheep.  The goats and sheep are enjoying the grass, and the chickens are happy: win, win!
