At Root 'N Roost Farm,  Cheyenne Miller and Sean Zigmund use permaculture to grow herbs, flowers, vegetables and to raise ducks, chickens and pigs. No-till farming, human and animal power, and used materials for building projects, this couple's experience is perfect for anyone interested in starting a homestead. Discussion will focus on using animals as "machines for farming" and farrow-to-finish pig breeding.  Contact Eleanor Blakeslee-Drain (607) 267-0184 for  info or ride share.
