Feeling SHEEPish

The Kellogg Conservation Center recently welcomed some new additions to the property: sheep!  Our neighbor, Peter Maggio of Mayflower Farm, is using the southern pastures behind the barns to do rotational grazing with his sheep.  This allows him another option for pasturage and the opportunity to expand his operation while helping us keep those fields "mowed" and fertilized, as well as occasionally hayed.  We are excited to have livestock back on the farm again after an almost 2-year hiatus.
I found an old photo, below, from nearby Great Barrington, MA a while back that I thought was kind of cool.  Notice the lack of trees - it is hard to find a hillside like that nowadays in the Berkshires that has so few trees.
