High Country Farming
High Country farms let the animals free on the mountains
to search for their sustenance.
Away from the plains we encounter steep, snow lashed areas where the ice age glaciers formed the land. Here the farmers are tough rugged. They breed mountain sheep, deer and cattle. Farming is different in the high country, options are limited but the life style away from the large population suits these farmers well.
The farmers and their workers are tough resilient people because of harsh remote conditions.
Farmers work with different breeds of grasses, animals and routines from the lowland operators.
Studies help us understand the comparisons between farms, management, inputs and products
