There is no greater feeling than producing the majority of what we need on on own land. We started this journey 9 years ago in Costa Rica and are so amazed with how far we have come. Feeding ourselves from our land always seemed like a daunting task, but feeding all of our animals too...Impossible. So we thought. I am happy to say, after years of hard work and experimentation, we are finally feeding our animals from our own homegrown food.
Animals are such an integral part of a Permaculture Homestead. They give us so much abundance, make our work on the farm so much easier, and bring us so much joy in our relationships with them. Living in the tropics certainly may make the task a little bit easier, but I am confident this can be done anywhere in the world. We are what we eat...and we eat what our animals eat. Fresh, homegrown, Organic food makes for happy and healthy animals. We would love to hear your comments on what you do in your part of the world. Thanks for watching.
