In this project several species of livestock will be used to develop a raw woodlot into a sustainable farm whose profits will benefit the farm family and the local community. The social normalcies of today allow people to purchase meat from a supermarket never knowing how the animal was raised or treated. Children and young adults are raised in a society that does not understand the hard work and dedication it takes for their food to be grown and processed. Whole animal butchery has become a thing of the past; much of the animal is wasted when sent to commercial slaughterhouses. Livestock can be used for a number of things other than becoming food for consumers. This project will utilize various species of livestock to transform the landscape of an 83 acre plot of land, provide a sustainable business for the farm family, participate in educating the public on the advantages of farm life, and explore ways to use the whole animal.
