Learn more about their practices below as Nick Austin discusses grazing management, water and fencing infrastructure, weed management and how the Holistic Management framework guides their decision making.
Chickens can be little soil legends, supporting profitable enterprises, regenerating soil and offering healthy food for local communities 🐓 🥚
