While I can't say much to the quality of the hay they eat. I did speak to the farmer and he said they don't medicate unless absolutely necessary and that's not that often. Mostly the fowl on ocassion. The quality of the hay is usually here in Northere vermont I know almost all hay fields are sprayed with liquid cow manure (now to say the cows are fed a great diet but the horse manure is atleast a step or two away from the bad stuff.

I don't know though.

And what's hog fuel?

So I just got a contact who will deliver for free (saving him money) as much horse manure as I desire. I want to disperse this on my budding farm as efficiently as possibke, all manual and small tractor with a tiny dump cart.
I will be composting as much as I can handle in the 18 day cycle, ala Jeff Lawton style.

Should I just keep spreading it on my fallow field all summer and not worry about composting it (I know weeds seeds will be an issue).

Any other ideas?

We have a small 40 foot long 12 foot wide 7 foot high poly tunnel that is currently housing our chickens for the winter.
We plan on blocking off 2/3 of it for seed starring.

We are zone 4 northern vermont. So I was going to build a few small raised beds with a mini green house with in a greenhouse. Is this doable in winter or should I start them inside which we are trying to avoid, hence the poly tunnel. Thoughts?

Thank your for the reply...I do live in sort of a wind tunnel. So I may stick with some black locust instead. I was hoping for some bow making stock as well. I'll still try some for sure.

2 questions I'm looking for Osage orange hedge row apples.

1. I live in zone 4 but close to zone 5 in northern Vermont, will they grow here?

2. Anyone willing so send me a few apples if I'm willing to pay shipping?

Thank you for your time,

Yes it is dutch white it was called by another name(i forget the exact name) but they sold it as dutch white. That's what I assumed but was unsure. What about stuff like carrots and lettuces. Or do they not tolerate nrt compete well with the clover.
