We have about 7 acres of land that are mainly forested with the majority of our property consisting of dying or died off hemlock that we intend to have harvested with the help of a forester.
Our goal is to have pasture on our property as well as in the forest in order to keep some livestock for pasture but also as a way to cover the soil and help with erosion, etc.
We will also be planting some black locusttrees along with some other fruit and nut trees and plants for harvest and such.
We would like to know what would be the best type of pasture mix for us to use in our area being that we are in Sussex county NJ and intend to raise livestock (goats, sheep, poultry and pigs) on pasture.
We also intend to go organic and are not sure if we need to start off with organic pasture seed as that would be important for us to know to start off well.
Any information, advice and source referrals on where to locate pasture seed and how to build a pasture would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you very much.
Without subsidies, chem-ag food costs four times more than organic. Or this tiny ad:
