Small Scaled Family Farming

In my view, farming is only profitable and sustainable in true form when it is practice as people’s agriculture, not the machine’s agriculture. With the people’s agriculture, the orchard/garden is considered as part of the home and the animal cares as a family member. images

I have the background of the subsistence rural agriculture and know the link between the small scaled farmer and their farm and animals. Such farmers only pick the fruit and vegetables when it is needed for food and cash money. The same they do with the animals. They hardly sell their animals when there is no extreme demand for the money.

Summers are bright with long days and a lot of grasses and flowers. Being a co-scientist and friend of camel researchers of Sweden, I visit this country, national veterinary institute (SVA) and country sides time to time. Dr Kerstin de Verdier, a very humble and kind fellow always materializes this tour and helps in exchange of knowledge and research projects.
A visit to meet and look at the camel (camelids) farms in Sweden was the important part of my visit this term (10-19 September, 2012). I visited Bactrian camel farms in the country sides and met camel owners. I was always warmly welcomed by the camel keepers and shared their experiences. The camel owners here in Sweden are hobbyists and they use camels for eco-tourism and ecosystem…
