We were able to see the chicken farm he set up on a one acre piece of land next to his house and veggie plot. He has been supplying chicken to us for the last 2 years and only now, we get to see where they came from. The chickens are all free to roam around in this big plot of land and they looked so happy and healthy.
The chicken being fed the old-fashion way. The shelter at the back ground is for the chickens at night and during heavy down pour. It is not used to confine the chicken as the gate is not closed.
Time to take a nap under some shade after lunch. What a life!Look at this adult rooster (there are only 2 in this farm) strutting to a most attentive audience!! Hmm...he must know he is a rare species in this community.
Remember the eggplant post with the worm-casting article? This is one of the plants where the eggplants came from. Still many more to harvest.These two rows of tomatoes plants are part of Daniel's revolutionary method of worm-cast farming.
Below are some of the many flowers I found planted in all corners surrounding the compound of the house. They can truly light up a day and I just have to share with you.
Gorgeous local orchid
A budding iris
It was a wonderful trip that took us away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life in the city and gave us a chance to come a little closer to nature. Our sincere thanks to Daniel and Doria for their warm and kind hospitality.
