The chickens and the sheep have a real nice relationship, once I put the chickens in pens with the sheep, I realized that there was no longer a need to get my sheep wormed (a non-organic practice many farmers take part in to protect their animals from parasites). My chickens peck through the sheep manure and eat the worms–this slowed and eventually eradicated the worm population.’ said Kenny. Without having a permaculture certificate, Kenny has learned by experience how to stack functions. ‘Its a small farm, we are on about 2 acres here, I manage in ways that allow us to become increasingly more sustainable– in every way.’ A quote on Fibershed’s An Afternoon at Woolly Egg Ranch
