Project Description

Livestock Manager

Tim started at A Rocha in the spring of 2015 after interning on the farm in the summer and fall before hand. Tim has an education background in horticulture (plants), so naturally started working with all the livestock at Brooksdale, from our clucking flock of egg-layers to the invisible microbes composting our organic wastes. When not tossing hay or chasing an escaped chicken, Tim works to improve nutrient cycling and soil health on A Rocha’s acres, which mostly involves watching grass grow and dung beetles burrow into…well, you know. When not at work, he spends his downtime reading, taking photographs and baking.
