Hello, my family and I are new farmers as of 09'. Our plan is to focus on heritage animals & veg.
Last year our first batch of chickens was an absolute bust, we broke #1 rule and we used dual purpose birds. Our largest bird was 4lbs with most being 2-3lbs!(at 15 weeks).
This spring we will use the standard rock x but if we wanted to also have some heritage birds is there a specific breed you would recommend??
Thanks for everything, I bought your ebook about market gardening before we bought our farm; it played a large role in our choices. We moved from busy Hamilton to a 6 acre farm in SW Ontario.
We have dark, black loam soil that townspeople comment on often. 2010 will be our first garden year. We will be doing chickens, turkeys, pigs, goats & perhaps a cow or 2. We are planning a very diverse farm with a touch of everything. I look forward to any and all newsletters.
