Monthly Harvest Summary

Permaculture is all about designing systems that produce a yield and at Zaytuna Farm we take this very seriously.  By recording our daily harvest and analysing our yield we are able to continuously tweak our systems to make sure that everything is working as intended.

Each month we will publish our figures here and share our harvesting highlights with you.

November’s
Harvest Review

We smashed this month, doubling our monthly total price from around $4888 to $8085

We didn’t process much meat this month, a few muscovys mainly.

For those meat eaters look out for December, We have a lot to process due to us building up numbers. We have so much to do.

Milk was averaging 4.8L a day. Daisy is back on the team and we are already seeing some increases leading to more yoghurt and cheeses.

Egg’s went down slightly from last month averaging  28 daily.
