Chicken

Pasture Raised Chicken

In a pastured poultry system birds are kept outside (seasonally). Portable shelters are used and the birds have access to fresh-growing palatable vegetation. The pastured poultry shelters are moved each day so that the chickens have access to fresh vegetation and so we can manage nutrient deposits on the land.

Beef

Grass Fed Beef

From the time an animal is born to the time it reaches your dinner table we take great care to consider the wellbeing of that animal and the environment in which it’s raised. Calves are born on pasture in late spring/early summer and cows are grazed using planned grazing techniques whereby they have access to fresh pasture each day.

Grassfed Lamb

Grass Fed Lamb

Our sheep are raised on pasture and are 100% grassfed. All of our grassfed lambs are raised on mixed perennial pastures and finished on a mix of perennial and annual grasses and alfalfa hay. We use high density planned grazing, moving the sheep every few days, with the objective of raising strong healthy lambs while contributing to healthy soils and healthy pastures.

Eggs

Pastured Eggs

Our pastured hens are raised seasonally, on pasture, where they roam during the day. We use portable hen houses that follow behind the cows and the sheep on pasture.

Pork

Pasture Raised Pork

Our pigs are raised in a pasture environment. Just as we do with the other animals on the farm, we move the pigs, changing the location of their paddock every couple of weeks.

A little bit about Lydia

I am originally from Winnipeg. While I was a student at the University of Winnipeg I studied Environmental Science and Geography where I took an interest in systems ecology and soil sciences (nutrient cycling!) Later I earned my Master’s in Natural Resources Management with a research focus on rural livelihoods and gender. My studies have taken me to Mexico and Brazil where I gained an increased understanding and appreciation for agrarian livelihoods and small-scale agriculture. Through my learning and farming experience I have come to realize that pasture based farming and food production are viable livelihood activities for young people in Canada. Farming allows Wian and I to work together, problem solve, learn from others, learn from our environment, and provide our community with healthy food. I am challenged everyday to make decisions that impact how we care for land, animals,family and friends.

The story on Wian

As long as I can remember I have wanted to graze livestock. I began farming in 2005 after moving to Canada from Pretoria, South Africa. From the age of 18 I studied during the winter months and farmed on rented land during the summer. Initially I focused on pastured poultry but dreamed of one day raising sheep and cattle on a mixed-livestock farm. I wanted to raise good food for people in my community. Over the past decade I have had the opportunity to raise chickens, turkeys, ducks, pigs, sheep, goats and cattle. Since the spring of 2012 Lydia and I have been farming in Western Manitoba where we raise our chickens and pigs on pasture use planned grazing management for our grassfed beef and lamb. I have found self directed-study, trial and error, mentorship and the direct application of attained skills to be the most rewarding learning tools.

When in doubt just slow cook with spices!

We slow cooked this beef round roast with onions, tomatoes, slat, pepper, red wine, butter, potatoes, carrots and a variety of spices including fresh ground coriander and cumin.

Roasts can seem daunting for folks not used to making them, but slow cooking using a wet cooking method (adding onion, wine etc) is great! Just put it the oven or slow cooker and 'forget' about it. I did this one in a cast enamel pot in the oven covered at 300 for 6 hours. I browned it first on the stove top.

It was pretty good!

I (Lydia) really love going for walks and taking pictures on the farm.

In the winter of 2012/13 I was working three jobs in Brandon. We were saving/investing every penny we could in the farm and in livestock. There was a lot of snow that year and the driving conditions to and from Brandon were tough. Besides for the off farm work I was doing we did not go many places.

I spent my leisure time walking the farm and taking pictures with my little point and shoot camera. I told Wian that one day, when things where not as lean, I would purchase a “real” camera.

Wian encouraged me to use some of the money I was making off of the farm to purchase myself a camera. We were investing a lot (everything) in the farm and he thought I needed something for myself... I am one of those people who buys something new and leaves it and box for two weeks so that by the time I use it, it is “less new”. I needed only a bit of convincing.

I love walking the farm and taking pictures. Love it!

These days it has been a bit more difficult to trudge through the fields of deep snow with an infant in tow and the extreme cold kept me indoors with the baby over the past while & so have taken fewer pics.

**If anyone has any tips for a good sled to pull through soft, deep now, let me know! I do have snowshoes if that helps...**

These photos are from a couple of days ago. The tractor made a nice trail through the snow and we were able to use the tire tracks as a pathway out to where the cattle are wintering. We hiked through the snow to see the pigs and almost made it out to the cows. The pigs are in a paddock about 300 meters from the yard. The cattle are nearly a 1/4 mile away.

I certainly get a workout walking to the cattle while pulling the sled. The sled did get stuck a few times and tipped being pulled over a deep drift. The baby thought it was great fun and smiled and laughed through the ordeal.
