Personal experience and production goals summary:

I have a Bachelor's degree in Animal Science and apprenticed on 3 different farms over a 2 year period before starting my own business. I've also completed multiple courses in farm business and marketing. I've owned and operated my own small scale livestock farm in Burgaw, NC for 5+ years, where I raise sheep, goats, hogs, chickens, ducks, turkeys and rabbits for meat and eggs. I sell primarily direct-to-consumer at local farmers' markets. Our farm is pasture based and organically minded, although not certified. We use an intensively managed rotational grazing system with our flocks of sheep and goats, followed by poultry in mobile coops. All of our animals are on pasture year-round and are fed non-GMO and soy free feeds. We aim to regenerate the land through our environmentally ethical practices. We would like to scale up but have reached the limits of what our land can sustain, so we are searching for a larger property with more potential for pasture.
