For some time, we have been searching for more land to expand our cattle herd. And we are very excited that we finally found some. Peter Nash has agreed to lease some of his nearby land to us. The new land is “under transition” to organic certification. This means it has not been farmed organically in the past, but we will be following organic practices, and the land will be eligible for certification in three years.
We will be very busy in the next few months–there are a lot of new fences to build, and we have to figure out how to deliver water where no water sources exist. But we are delighted that we now have a chance to keep up with increasing demand and to build the farm into a self-sustaining business.
