In the past, we have been fortunate to have the apple pulp from the cider press at the Bousfield’s organic orchard in Milton to feed our pigs.
Well I’m thrilled to say we now also feed a selection of locally grown and processed hemp byproducts to the piggies and chickens too!!!
Yes you heard me.
No more Soy.
No more corn.
Organic apple pulp? YES
local pesticide free hemp full of omegas? YES
gmo free wheat and oat ration with minerals and enzymes? YES
Boy do these animals have it good.
I’m really excited about these changes and I hope you are too. I’m sure we’ll have to tweak the feeding plan as we go but this is a wonderful improvement and a great step towards achieving the farming system we dream of here on our farm.
On a side note, I have offered to bring Purity Hemp products to you in Burlington. So if anyone is interested in hemp hearts, oil, soaps, and balms, please check out their webpage http://www.purityhemp.ca and I’ll be sure to let you know what kind of deals I can get you.
