Challenges: Managing the health of a small flock of sheep without chemical supplement in order to provide organically grown meat.
Solutions: Our sheep are grazed on our 100 acres of primarily native pasture using holistic management practices. This provides them with a constant source of fresh pasture and reduces the potential for worms.
Our sheep are not drenched, tail-docked or given any synthetic chemicals. They are pasture fed and provided with a ‘self-select’ mineral station which we call ‘tequila’ this provides them with natural protection from internal and external parasites.
The sheep run with the cattle along with two alpacas and a Maremma dog for fox protection.
Long term plan: We aim to slowly and naturally increase the size of the flock as our pasture and soil conditions improve.
Our lamb is available seasonally by order and occasionally at Braidwood, Northside (Canberra University) and Southside (CIT Woden) markets.
