Pasture Rejuvenation Project
Coggeshall Farm Museum is a non-profit farm museum in Colt State Park in Bristol, Rhode Island, U.S.A. The eighteenth century coastal tenant farm is located on 48 acres of land in Bristol and features interpreters and authentic reenactments of farm life in the year 1799.
Gnarly Vines partnered with Coggeshall Farm to bring farm activities back to their pastures. The objective is to not only rejuvenate their pastures with our animals but to also display and contrast how farming is done now compared to how it used to be done in the 1800's. We bring new and more efficient methods to be a successful and profitable farm while trying to keep our prices affordable.
2019 has been the test year, we build a couple of mobile chicken coops where we ran chickens and turkeys in the pasture. Inside we have bulk feeders and waterers to help us be more efficient with our time and since we do not live at the farm we had to come up with an idea of how to keep the animals safe from the many predators we see there, yet still be able to be in the pastures eating fresh grass and bugs.
Our chicken coops are in the field and you are welcome to come see the operation. 2020 is shaping up to be an even more exciting year, so stay tuned and check back often to learn about other animals and projects coming to Coggeshall Farm Museum.
