Animals on the Farm
Eat weeds, fertilize the soil, bring their special unique vitality, and support biodiversity.
Here’s how some wineries practice Animals on the Farm…
We have Scottish Highland cows, 2 sheep, chickens, meat rabbits, 2 bee hives (6 more coming in Spring 2011), dogs, cats and lots of owls.
We don’t believe that animals are something you own or hold dominion over. Instead, we believe that humans have the responsibility to care for domesticated animals and to provide or protect the habitat for wild animals. At present, we provide safe access to water, cover and food for a large assortment of wild animals and birds. We do not yet have the staff to provide adequate care and protection for domesticated animals as well.
We have sheep and cows from our neighbors roam the upper hill slope of the farm.
