Woods, hedgerows and untouched grassy areas are essential on a healthy farm. These areas serve as sanctuaries for the wildlife where they can thrive undisturbed by the activities of the farm. Its easy to lose site of the contributions of the wild animals as we go about our busy farm life taking care of the domestic animals and plants. But these creatures aid to the overall well being of the farm as insect control, ecological balance, as well as the feeling of serenity and a knowing that we are part of something much larger. These wildlife areas allow for a balancing of the animal populations so that wild animals can over grow and become highly competitive with the cultivated yields can be kept in check.
