Farming Enterprise

"There are about 10 acres here. Up till the mid 1980's we were farming 10 milk cows and feeding 250 pigs. We no longer farm commercially."

"We feed a few cattle, a few sheep, a few pigs and poultry-ducks, geese, turkeys, chickens-all of which are free range. And we grow our own vegetables without using commercial fertilizers, aiming to be self sufficient for ourselves."

"Any surplus food is sold off to the visitors going through the center and also at country markets."
