What you'll do
We will meet on the farm and have a brief orientation, including the overview of the farm and our growing practices as well as a brief description of the animals we will be visiting and their husbandry. We will visit each of the animal areas on the farm, learn what they eat and how they are kept. There will be opportunities to photograph and to pet the animals, feed them treats, and hold the friendliest ones.
I am the owner of Laurenwood Farm, a permaculture farm in Loretto, Ontario. I have extensive experience with large and small farm animals. As a local firefighter, I helped to establish a technical large animal emergency rescue training program for Ontario first responders and veterinarians. As a farmer, I am very concerned with raising animals in a healthy, happy environment and an environmentally conscious way.
