Bart Saelen and his wife Maryann own and run O’Naturel farm, a small-scale agricultural business centered around 250 laying hens that produce about 200 eggs/day. They follow a model of rotational grazing pioneered by U.S. farmer Joel Salatin and which is also used by Richard Perkins of Ridgedale Permaculture in Sweden.

To see another working example of this system of rotational grazing, make sure you check out our feature documentary Gracie’s Backyard about Ridgedale Permaculture.
