There are cattle and pork on site, I think there are no longer goats or chickens but with more people to watch them I imagine that might change. The land is dry, rocky, rather sloped and mostly populated with pine/fir/spruce. This is Montana. Mountainsides in Montana.
Patience, grasshopper. The food will come!

We mostly eat paleo-ish around here - very much organic or better and grassfed meats. Which means lots of veggies, meat, eggs, plenty of animal fats, naturally fermented foods and some fruits. We try to minimize starchy foods and sugar, and are not eating much in the way of dairy products at this time, though we imagine incorporating raw milk products from animals on the land.
