Grazing, Pasture and Nutrient Management Practices

Animals are 100% on pasture all year with shelter. Never in confined places.

We have our 36 acres fenced and cross fenced. We use rotational grazing March through September. From October through February it is more of a free range style by putting our livestock on our 20 acre hay field with apple trees with access to shelter.

We are working with the Clackamas County Water and Soils District to ensure that our farm practices enhance our pastures and do not cause adverse consequences. We’ve also taken Mud and Manure management classes to learn ways to keep housing areas dry and mud to a minimum during long wet winter seasons. We compost manure that is left in the shelters. Manure in the pasture is absorbed during the winter back into the soil. I also have a small manure spreader.

We are located on a hill where there are constant winds that seems to minimizes our fly issues. We use organic sprays on our horses, have added bat housing, had mosquito eating fish added to our pond and dump our water troughs frequently to avoid mosquitoes.

Environmental Conservation

We are working with the Clackamas County Soil and Water District to create a wildlife habitat around our pond. It is approximately 2 acres and we planted over one thousand native plants and pay to have the blackberries professionally removed annually. Our property had been a rental for decades covered with Scotchbroom, Tansy Ragwart and Daisies when we purchased it in 2005. We have worked hundreds of hours removing these invasive species of plants.
