Creating a Habitat

We own a former East German dairy farm complex.
The dairy farm is mainly demolished.
Our goal on this property is to establish a parma-agro-forst-culture.

The property is surrounded by big conventional worked fields witch leaves little space for wildlife. We established a deadwood hedge along one of our property boundaries to create a habitat for the local wildlife. We used of cuts from our willow trees to build the deadwood hedge. The last 2 years we have been constantly adding material to grow the hedge.

The hedge is home to a large variety of small mammals, deer, birds, pheasants and snakes.
Its nice to have this wildlife save haven on our property.
