In addition to the horses, Dale has a strong background in sustainable agriculture and organic farming and is very interested in holistic farm management. His goal is to integrate the sheep and other livestock and crop enterprises in developing an efficient operation where the various enterprises and activities support each other. Having grown up on a diversified farm, Dale appreciates the benefits of farm life and labor and has likes to include the agriculture units into the youth development program.
Currently, most of the agriculture and forest management practices are for home use, although some of the vegetable produce is sold at a local farmers market. The horses are used for some of the woodlot harvest and also plow, harrow, and cultivate the 2 ½ acre garden.
