Re: FOR SALE - Sustainable, fully traceable Patagonia fox products

Dear EF Members
Thank you for all the interest in the topic.

Some of you might be familiar with Patagonia. This remote and archaic region of the world has been populated by english settlers 150 years ago.
Interestingly the first sheep came from the Falkland Islands.

Today, sheep ranching in Patagonia provides purpose and living to many local people who would otherwise move to urban areas with limited professional perspectives.

We produce organic certified Merino wool. The climate permits to raise sheep without mulesing. (look it up on wikipedia), which is different to Australia and South Africa sheep farming.

Sustainable farming means balancing social, ecologic and economic goals.
A thriving sheep ranch invigorates the grasslands and helps absorbing CO2. This land could not be used for any other cultivation than ranching.


http://www.nature.org/ourinitiatives...tina/index.htm

While we move our herds with trained shepherd dogs and horses from paddock to paddock (sizes of 2000-4000 ha) we also are entitled to control the population of the fox, similar to the population of wild animals in Europe. Note that our sheep and horses remain 365 days a year in pure wild nature.

When the sheep lamb, we have to protect the mothers and their offspring and thus hunt the fox.

Instead of discharging the furs, we craft handmade products, which you can acquire. Thus sustaining a value chain of dedicated professionals in Argentina,
And with the income, our team can make an additional income on the farm.

Feel free to reach out to me if you have any doubts. Note, you can access our FB page without being a FB member, as its public.

Kind regards,

Patagonia

He shoots them because one of his jobs is the control of the local population of Patagonian foxes. Then, instead of chucking the carcasses away, he takes their fur and makes them into blankets and that.
Funny, i could have sworn the OP already said all that, but apparently not :

Are we to assume that this person is profiting financially from killing wild animals?
Nope. No assumption necessary.

Don't forget the Welsh Spent far too little time there a few years back, including a visit to the quaint Welsh tea rooms in the Argentinian town of Trevelyn.

Not to mention the Chilean national hero Bernardo O'Higgins, who might just have had a bit of Irish in him.

One of the world's more stunning regions, and I've seen a few of them
