Today marks the end of another era on the farm. We've butchered the three goats and have temporarily suspended raising rabbits.The Goats were proving more hassle than worth. They were destroying fences and vegetation whilst not producing much milk and the offspring were dying too young and weak. They were burning money whilst not providing anything. The butcher came and we now have a freezer full of goat meat all expertly chopped for £20.
We've been slimming down our rabbit collection since Andy broke his Achilles and today we swapped out our remain 3 rabbits for a new set in September. It gives a us time to repair the hutches; makes our animal sitters lives a little easier and reduces our grain purchasing as the remain animals can live off the grass and things growing on the farm
