If there is anything you should be proud of your Barry Farm Farmers for it should be this. This is a picture we took today (on the top) and 2 weeks ago in a pasture that we graze our sheep in. Conventional wisdom suggests that in a prolonged drought like we have been sheep would make a desert where this grass grows. And as a matter of fact they absolutely would if left to the whole pasture and not managed by diligent and observant farmers

The act of grazing is actually beneficial in encouraging pasture to thrive. Left alone and this place would in time be take over but brush and go toward a brushy/forested situation. But here grazing intensively then with long periods of rest actually stimulate grass to grow, even in drought.

Go little farm go!
