We are offer our sheep for 2 different types of grazing. 1. We offer our sheep to help you graze your property. Do you have areas that you need cleared that are hard to navigate with your mowing gear? DO you have open cuts of timber you would like to claim back? Give us a call and we can come out to help you with your problem. 2. We are currently grazing our growing sheep flock on Solar panels in Virginia.
Why use our sheep to graze? Through rotational grazing we can manage for diversity in plant structure between the paddocks in pastures. When grazing we typically do not come back to an area that has been grazed for a minimum of 30 days. This window allows us to influence the bloom time and to extend it. This practice promotes more species of plants to bloom and set seed while offering diverse microsite conditions that are beneficial to species like butterflies and bees.
Putting animals back into the system increases the organic matter of the soil, which will improve water holding capacity to allow the ground to be more resistant to drought. It allows for more water capture which decreases runoff, because more carbon builds soil aggerates in the profile, which will allow for water to move down through the substrate. Increasing soil life will add to the engine of the site for converting sunlight into energy fostering microbes and other soil life.
