PASTURED POULTRY, NO-DIG MARKET GARDENS AND STUFF

2 comments

Broilers and turkeys are out on pasture now, and the cucumbers have gone into the tunnel. The market gardens are looking good, but for the first time ever we’re having issues with deer munching away.

Are deer an issue on your farm?

    Hi, all! My husband snd I live in southwest Mississippi and have dozens of deer on our farm. We successfully keep them at bay by using two concentric electrified rope fences. Each fence has two electrified ropes. Each rope is run at a different elevation. The deer do not like the three-dimensional puzzle-solving required for entry so our market garden remains undisturbed!

    We do have a deer problem here on Ekerö and usually cover all lettuce and mangold with nets. Sometimes they go on beet roots, but they never managed to pull them out of the soil, just eating some leaves. They also love eating remainders from the cider mill. We learned to live together I think. Best regards
