I found this video while surfing the Blogosphere today. It's about a diversifed sustainable farm in California that uses only animal power. One of our goals here is to use draft animals, but it's one of those areas where we've been less than successful so far. You might recall that when Clare, the la mancha goat, had her buckling at the end of May, I was actually excited, because I've been wanting a larger wether for driving. Little Maestro has been wethered, and we're excited about teaching him to drive, so we can use him in the garden for plowing and for pulling a manure cart from the barn to the garden. As Daniel says in the video, we'll always have grass, so we won't have to worry about the price of gas or diesel.
