Livestock

Here you will find guides on how to keep livestock on the suburban homestead. I do have some experience with larger animals but at Boobook Farm we teach people how to be more self sufficient in the suburbs and so the focus is on smaller homestead animals.

Poultry

Poultry provide many services on the permaculture farm. They can provide meat and eggs but can also be an important part of composting, fertilising and weed and pest management systems.

Bees

The pollinators of the homestead, bees can also provide you with honey and wax.

Worms

Worms are some of the most useful animals kept on the homestead. The fantastic recyclers of kitchen waste and make excellent compost for the garden.
