A multi-species pasture is better

Here's why:

Very Little Barn Time

Pasture-raised animals receive a significant portion of their nutrition from organically managed pasture where they are free to roam and forage. Simply, they are healthier and the milk and eggs we collect is more nutrient dense.

More Uniform Grazing

Horses graze the pasture for a couple of hours in the morning; a herd of goats for a few hours in the afternoon. Multi species rotational grazing has many advantages including better weed and bush control, improved natural parasite control, and more room to accommodate more animals.

Decreased Wildfire Fuel Loads

In the summer, wildfires are very prevalent in our area. With more uniform grazing, we can do our part to decrease the amount of fuel to burn in wildfires.

Increased Carrying Capacity

Different species have different forage preferences. We can add other animals to an existing herd without harming the land and without interfering with the original herd’s performance. Goats have preferences different from horses, so they are not competing for pasture resources.
