Hi,

My family and I have a small pasture poultry farm and we are looking at purchasing a 43 acre farm which has about 32 acres of woods .  My first thought was clearing it and turning it into pasture,(which I didn't exactly like) until I read an article by Penn State on raising heritage Turkeys on silvopasture.  After googling silvopasture it sounded to me like their natural environment, and gave me a whole new plan for the property. I have many questions, which I'm going to try find answers for before I post a repeat of someone else's question.
