Living Fences, Silvopasture, and Sheep Products with All Sorts Acres
Monday July 11 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
All Sorts Acres is a 50-acre regenerative permaculture farm supporting a flock of 40 pastured ewes, and producing such products as wool, sheep milk gelato, kefir, yogurt, artist charcoal, and pastured lamb. Operating as a whole farm ecosystem, each area’s waste feeds into other areas of the farm. This spring, farmers Jennifer and Tim have planted living willow fences to form the basis of European-style hedgerows which will contain sheep, support biodiversity, provide animal fodder, and can be used for on and off farm products such as fuel, baskets, and artist charcoal. Come tour the farm to learn more about its interconnected systems and lessons learned in pasturing sheep, and to see the beginning of living fences in action. Kick off summer with this field day — there may even be gelato samples!
