Our hill pastures grow native oaks, big leaf maple, pine and fir trees. The sheep are pastured there in the summer. They have helped us rid invasive and noxious plants. We also use our sheep to eat other crops for other farmers, and this cuts down on the use of fuels and herbicides.
Our farm has a low carbon footprint since our sheep are grazed in the Willamette Valley in a radius of a few miles. Our grass fed lambs are processed and sold locally, saving fuel and transportation costs.
