Tres Vientos Permaculture Model of Raising Livestock applies the principles of permaculture (ecologically sustainable permanent agricultural methods) to multi-species grazing. Goats and sheep are grazed in accordance with the principles and ethics of permaculture for market sale (meat, hide and milk). Nicaragua has a growing industry of permaculture, but focused on cultivating plants. Tres Vientos would be the first learning farm to combine diversification of grazing with an ecological design sensitive to the earth.
