Sunny Acres Farm was included in the 2015 Legislative Tour sponsored by New York State Farm Bureau. We were happy to have the chance to talk about the history of the farm - now in the 6th generation of our family - and show the visitors how we manage our pasture-raised meat goats using rotational grazing. We also had an opportunity to talk about the importance of cover crops, and using a variety of forages to both improve soil health and to enhance the nutritional value of the goats' daily diet.
