The Longeways

Brian & Debbie....Kevin & Katie....


We have started using used wooden pallets around the farmstead. We haven't had animals on the farm for years, so the fences are falling down. We have started getting a few animals for the grand kids to grow up with. They live in town but come out often. So far I have hauled about 700 pallets from town.

Our plans are to develope the farmstead as a productive permaculture site for others to learn from. This will take some time to implement.  We  will learn by our mistakes and from others. As we are all working of the farm these things will take time. Send us your ideas and suggestions. If your going to be north of Calgary  Alberta stop by to visit. Check our list of things to do and the things we are recycling. (recycling)
