    I reproduced this with credit to Troy:
    “We strive for a stress-free life. We want our topsoil covered by diverse pastures harvested by animals, thus recycling solar energy and activating biological life to provide a sustainable profit. We want to regenerate our community with local food. We want to create a savannah for wildlife. We want to create a place for the next generation to thrive.”

    I am intrigued by “We want to create a savannah for wildlife.” I have not decribed things in such terms for our farm but will be thinking it through, discussing it, and then trying to formulate things.
