I've been taking the scenic route with detours to traditional healthy living. Babka Farms is a way to share the efforts with others on this journey. We both need and offer encouragement along the way. And I also have a few goats and chickens should you decide to enrich your life and table :)
Carmel and Fancy all about the Mulberry bush!
The animals have access to large pasture areas every day during most of the season. Certain times of year they are off pasture to assist with rotation schedules. I supplement with organic feed, especially for the nannies in milk. The goats also get organic alfalfa and organic sunflower seeds. I raise all our animals holistically with herbs and special feeds such as lespedeza as a preventative approach to build a strong immune system and to treat as needed. For the most part the goats have maintained and restored their health with this approach. There were a few times the worm load got the upper hand so I treated conventionally. I now check fecals regularly, rotate pastures, and provide bioworma a few times a year.
I love to tell the story... Let me know if you would like to fellowship in God's Word and discuss His wonderful gift.
"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life." John 3:16
Thank you for visiting the site. May God's blessings abound!
I strive to incorporate dietary principals from the Westin Price Foundation into our lifestyle. I eat and prepare as much of our own food as I can. The transition has been neither difficult or easy. I find myself enjoying treats from my childhood at times too! My go to cookbook is Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon and Mary Enig
