The Rev. Ciff Jeffers, Rector of Fanlobbus Union, writes:
On Thursday 24th of February the Fanlobbus Youth Group visited Coolkelure Farm, which is owned by John and Viri Kingston Castro, who are participating in ‘regenerative agriculture’. The confirmation group and young people from the youth group toured the farm and had the concept of regenerative farming explained to them.
Spring is a great time to visit Coolkelure Farm, with all the lambs, puppies and chickens. In the second half of the day, our young people assisted with the setup of a vegetable tunnel, laying down cardboard and covering it with wood chippings. The day concluded with some Mexican food, homemade burritos and a tasting opportunity of organic goats milk which is produced directly on the farm.
Thank you to John, Viri and their family for a great tour and an insight into their environmentally sensitive method of farming.
