Farms

Animal Husbandry

Caring well for domestic animals is a central premise of the Pumalín Project farms. Organic management practices are complemented by a standard of animal care that is intended to create tranquil, healthy, and happy lives for the domestic animals living there. A key goal is to instill in the younger generation a care and respect for farm animals that carries over to wildlife.

In order to increase and maintain agro-diversity, careful consideration is given to what breeds of livestock are best adapted for local conditions. The Pumalín Project has worked to improve the genetics of livestock herds, allowing them to thrive in extremely wet conditions.
