Thank you for joining us here at Holistic Livestock! We live on acreage in Southern California. We utilize solar power as our sole source of electricity. Luckily, California has tons of sunshine to keep the solar panels happy and our electrical needs met. Wood burner stoves provide the main heat sources in both the main house and cottage.
We only utilize holistic methods in the treatment of plants, trees, animals, and humans. We have found that natural remedies are far superior to traditional methods. As such, we only use natural remedies.
The livestock provide great weed abatement services during the winter and spring months. All birds: geese, ducks, chickens, peafowl, guineas, etc. provide some weed control, as well as very effective bug control. The country cats keep the mice, rats, gophers, and cotton tail bunnies at bay. We have many predators here, i.e., mountain lions, bobcats, coyotes, foxes, feral dogs, owls, hawks, etc., but we have found great protection with Great Pyrenees livestock guardian dogs and llama rescues.
We've planted over 200 trees, in the past 10 years. Many of these are fruit and nut trees. We have organic veggie/fruit/herb gardens that are almost providing for all of our produce needs. We utilize all livestock, rabbit, and bird manures for our composting.
We are the home of Whispering Winds Wholistic Animal Sanctuary. This is an all-animal rescue and rehab facility.
We utilize natural rearing methods in raising all animals here. No prepackaged feeds (i.e., dog food, cat food, goat mix, etc.) are used. For more information on animal health and natural rearing methods, please see our Animal Health page.
We have found holistic methods of pest control, parasite control, and alternative medical treatments, to be much more effective and healthier for all concerned versus traditional methods of treatment. All beings, whether human, plant, or animal, retain better health with holistic methods. Standard methods of disease prevention, illness, pest control, etc. have often failed us, at great expense to the being's health and our pocket books.
It is our goal to maintain the quality of health for all beings here and to offer alternatives for those choosing to research alternative health and healing methods. Many products we sell are those we have found very hard to obtain at our local feed/pet stores and health food stores. We do not use/sell second-rate products. We want only the best for our animals and ourselves. Additionally, many of the products we utilize here at Wolf Creek Ranch for ourselves, plants, and animals and have found superior results are obtained with them. We do not sell or promote products that we would not or do not personally use.
We recycle all recyclable materials. This means, if we have a used box that your order will fit in, we will ship it in that box to save a tree. Some of our packing materials are shredded paper, packing peanuts, bubble wrap, etc. - making use of it a second time, instead of throwing the paper away. Our planet is important to all of us! Keeping Mother Earth healthy is optimum for everyone.
This site is dedicated to all animals and their guardians. Whether you are here to find information and links to research holistic methods or just browsing, please feel free to linger as long as you wish. If you have any questions, please feel free to e-mail us. We would be happy to assist in any way we can. May you and yours be in good health always.
