Silvopasture: Integrating Trees and Livestock

Starting in the fall of 2021, we began planting Nut and fruit trees throughout the property, as well as smaller fruit bearing shrubs. In the short term, trees will be used for livestock shade and fodder, and to support a diverse ecosystem. Future uses include tree crops and eventually timber.

We grow all of our nut trees from seed, which include Hazelnut, Walnut, Chestnut, Butternut, and Oak.
