Benefit to Local Foodshed: In addition to a large variety of crops, animals are a large part of the farm. Chickens fertilize and scratch through veggie fields, lambs fertilize and spread seeds throughout the pastures and maintain the grass length, and the pigs eat fallen apples and pulp from cider. The addition of portable electric fencing will allow the pigs to graze in the orchard which directly prevents insect damage to the trees.
