The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated” – Mahatma Gandhi Forest Beck from Abu Dhabi asked us to put some pictures of our animals on the web site since farm visits can be scheduled from March. This made us think that there are many more who would be interested in knowing about our cattle, goats, ducks , hens and quails. We would start updating a lot more information about that in our blog. Our average egg flock size is approximately 100 birds—very small when compared to conventional caged bird houses that often have between 100,000 and 250,000 hens.
We farm in harmony with nature.
Our animals have access to outdoors. Cattle graze in pasture whenever possible. Natural sunlight is required in the hen houses. .
Our on-staff animal care specialist consult with our farmers on how to work with animals’ natural behaviours to maximize their comfort and well-being
We provide conditions for optimal production and well-being without the use of synthetic hormones.
We prefer to accept less than 25 litres of milk per day , We observe that this practice reduces stress on the animals and increases longevity. We practice holistic and preventative animal health care.
Care for animals is a primary concern for our farmers. Since the use of antibiotics and other quick fixes is strictly prohibited, organic animal farming has to involve healthy, happy animals. Our two staff veterinarians provide holistic health care expertise and assistance to our farmers. The temperatures have been cooler and with the rains, most of our produce is taking longer to ripen. We have started harvesting carrots( not baby carrots, large carrots). hey would be ready in 10 days . Okra, broccoli and some of the Tomatoes and Capsicums also need sunshine in order to do well and have therefore taken longer to ripen. We have lots of kale , potatoes, cherry tomatoes and spinach , yet no pumpkins, squashes, fennel and many more. We had a few complaints on the quantities last week, we have rectified that. The Veg Boxes would be having a larger quantity of our baby carrots and baby beets.
