Is 1 bird per square metre 'free range'? Is no grass / insects to feed on the way you want your chickens treated? Here at BurraBee Farm we have about 7 chickens to the hectare, or to put it another way, almost 1,500 square metres per chicken. That's about 4 times more area than the standard block size for a family in Googong!!! What does free range mean to you?
Where's the content?
Today's newsletter is a little (lot!) shorter than the usual. We've had a super busy week catching up after being away at the Deep Winter Agrarian gathering and attended a new market in Turner on Saturday, a big thanx to all the new faces we met and to Patrick from Sly Fox Coffee for putting on an awesome day.
Even on a cold day the sun can still cause sunburn if you're out for long periods in the garden. Days like today are a prime example. Always remember to Slip, Slop, Slap; keep yourself covered and be sure to wear a wide brimmed hat.
