    We have been farming small ruminants ie goats and now sheep for over 15 years now.  Our biggest market has been the Muslim community.

Todays holiday brings families together and our farm will be part of a friend's celebration. 

    4 yearling sheep will be sacrificed and dressed at the farm.  1/3 of the meat will go to the poor, 1/3 to extended family and friends and then rest for the families feast.  Our friend is a professional butcher who loves the way we raise and care for our flock.  

    As a vegetarian i'm simply glad to see our animals to be handled with so much care and compassion.  As a trans woman i'm glad to find acceptance by Imams and the muslim community. 

   If you don't know about it here is an explanation of the Eid:

 

Islamic religious festival

Eid al-Adha, also called the "Festival of the Sacrifice", is the second of two Islamic holidays celebrated worldwide each year (the other being Eid al-Fitr), and considered the holier of the two. It honors the willingness of Ibrahim (Abraham) to sacrifice his son as an act of obedience to God's command. wikipedia.org

  

Hugs,

The sharing of the offerings as actual food and sustenance for the immediate family and for all of the others impresses me and I feel admiration for the custom involved here.  To me the 2/3's for others concept shows a side of Islamic beliefs that we do not hear about often enough.
