When all the animals are in the barn for winter, it takes careful management to make sure you don't end up with a stinky, unhealthy mess. We like to utilize something we call the "carbon diaper." Watch this video to see how we keep our barn stink-free and our animals in healthy living conditions, all while building up fertility for future gardens and pastures.
