Time to break out the neem oil. Neem is a natural, organic product from the neem tree.Next PostBeing a sustainable farm means integrating different parts of the farm together in a way that makes the best use of everything we have. Here Sally and Princess are eating some of the older sugar snap peas vines that we cleaned out to make room for the next crop planned for that space. There’s still a few pea pods on the vines, and there is always a race to find them before the other goats. Humans aren’t the only ones who love sugar snap peas!
