Shepherd

is creating ethical agriculture on a tiny farm.

Select a membership level

Cheerio Hero
$1.50
per month
This pays for grain for the sheep and goats for one day!

At this level, if you have questions about the farm or the animals, I'll answer them publicly on the blog!
Vaccine Vigilante
$3
per month
Monthly cost of annual vaccine costs for goats and sheep. At this level and above, patrons will have access to chapters of the book on small scale farming I'm attempting to write, with chapters posted on a vaguely monthly basis. 
Fluff Fan
$5
per month
This pays for all concentrated food (grain or pellets) for a day: rabbits, poultry, goats, and sheep.

All previous rewards, plus see baby animals first! When new residents hatch or are born, you'll get the first look at their pictures and we'll talk about what makes each one a valuable addition to the Manor of Mixed Blessings.

About

I'm currently rehabilitating 7 acres of old tobacco farm that had gone to tangled second-growth forest -- turning it into sustainable silvopasture and thus creating diverse habitat for native plants and wildlife. In the process, I'm also helping to preserve two rare livestock breeds: Soay sheep and Kerry cattle.

All Patrons receive 20% off on fiber and textiles over at http://manorofmixedblessings.com/shop and get special rates on spinning and weaving commissions.
Goals
$1,500 - reached! per month
At this point I'd be able to replace my elderly Honda CRV and pick up something with more cargo space and towing capacity that's smaller and cheaper to run than my F350. I love my CRV to death but at 190k miles it's getting to the end of its lifespan.
