grass carp farming

I've always liked pasture, especially with real, native, mixed species hedgerows and the occasional mature native tree in the field. There's lots of beef and sheep farming hereabouts (North Cornwall), which is fine, but: a. In an overpopulated world, 500 lbs of of meat per acre every other year seems a small crop; b. Small farms are failing, because the profit per acre is miniscule with large

allotments landscape Cornwall

It makes a change from photos of flowers and food: this is the landscape from the top of the site. Many of the allotments are organic. Most appealing feature (for me) is the diversity. It's amazing how inventive people are when they have the opportunity (in this case, access to land). Related: allotments, Cornwall, landscape, photos, organic, gardens

Bought for the princely sum of £1 a couple of years ago from a supermarket: What was about 3 inches high has gradually grown into a reasonable bush, clinging to  net fencing on my allotment. I am very pleased to discover it has set lots of flowers. garden photos It has had all sorts of weather to contend with - up to 2 inches of rain a day (December to February), very cold and dry April,

non-GMO layers pellets and pond supplies, Bude Cornwall

I've tried to buy non-GMO1 layers pellets for my poultry in Bude district, North Cornwall and the farm suppliers don't stock them. Likewise the pet shops say I'll have to go to Wadebridge for pond supplies - water filters and pumps, anti fungus treatment for pond fish, etc. The good news is, Stable Door in Bude stock all these and more! their opening times: Opening Times Monday - Friday·9:00am

optimum food for free range hens - sprouting wheat for vitamins

It is clear to me, having kept 'free range' hens, that layers pellets are not the only food they need or like. They clearly like grass, especially young short shoots, but in the winter the grass either doesn't grow here (Cornwall) or it is drowned and the hens turn the whole plot to mud if they have access. I also feed mixed poultry corn: 90% wheat and 10 % maize, but several facts have led to
