A Day at Dexter’s World: A Journey Towards Sustainable Farming
Welcome back to Dexter’s World, where our passion for sustainable farming and self-sufficiency shapes every day into an adventure. Today, I’m thrilled to share with you the latest strides we’ve made towards our ambitious goal of creating a thriving, self-sustaining farm that not only provides for us but also educates and entertains our beloved community.
Expanding Horizons with New Rabbit Cages
Our journey begins with the exciting expansion of our rabbitry. We’ve recently constructed additional cages specifically designed for our breeders, aiming to house more than 100 breeder rabbits. This significant step forward is driven by our goal to produce thousands of rabbits, which will eventually allow us to offer rabbit meat to our customers. The expansion of our farm’s land has provided us with the much-needed space to grow, and I can’t help but beam with pride as we edge closer to our vision of a sustainable future.
The Grass-Fed Advantage
As our rabbits grow, their diet remains purely natural, consisting of grasses, water spinach, and cover crops readily available on our farm. This approach not only ensures the health and well-being of our rabbits but also aligns with our philosophy of minimizing costs and maximizing self-sufficiency. By relying on the bounty of our surroundings, we’re able to sustain our animals without the need for costly commercial feeds.
From Old to New: Repurposing with Purpose
In our quest for efficiency and sustainability, we’ve repurposed an old quail coop into a new rabbit hutch with nine compartments across three layers. This innovative transformation underscores our commitment to resourcefulness and adaptability, key traits for any successful sustainable farming venture.
A Haven for Ducks and Chickens
Our farm is a bustling hub of life, home not only to rabbits but also to a vibrant community of ducks and chickens. These feathered friends thrive in their natural habitat, with our ducks particularly benefiting from the mud pond that fosters effective breeding and abundant egg production. It’s a joy to witness the cycle of life unfold in such a harmonious setting.
Engaging the Community: A Source of Joy
One of the most rewarding aspects of our journey is the opportunity to share our world with others. Whether it’s children enjoying a day at the farm or visitors feeding our animals, the joy and wonder in their eyes are priceless. Our farm has become a place of learning, laughter, and connection, bringing people closer to the wonders of nature.
Innovation and Education: The Future of Dexter’s World
As we continue to evolve, our ambitions soar even higher. We’re exploring new ways to engage and educate, including teaching our African lovebirds to play basketball! This playful endeavor is more than just entertainment; it’s a testament to our belief in the endless possibilities that come with patience, creativity, and a deep love for all creatures.
