The magic of grazing…

Thistle Hill Farm Grazing

This photo by son-in-law Curt Humphreys captures the harmonious relationship among soil, grass, animals and sky that is an on-going process on the pastures of Thistle Hill.

There are no losers in this kind of farming…the soil, the grass, the cows and the environment all prosper.  And the farmer does, too.

It’s easy to lose sight of the Big Picture but every once in awhile we come across a kindred spirit, such as Suzanne Nelson Karreman in North Carolina, who puts it into words better than most of us can.  She deals with the holistic nature of this kind of husbandry…yes, including the ultimate death involved.
