It sounds like you're off to a good start. I always think chickens are a good way to start. We sell extra eggs to family and friends who are happy to get farm fresh, hormone and antibiotic free eggs and meat. The chickens will pay for themselves and bring a little money in. You have to look at it that way, or you'll be pouring money into the feed store!

Come visit me, Larkshire Farm.

So happy that you have your 20 acres! That is so wonderful. We have a tiny acreage and have been dreaming of a larger parcel/farm since I was a girl. Maybe in the next 2 years, we will be able to get to something bigger.

Looks like a beautiful property and that back porch is heavenly.

Have a wonderful autumn on your new farm!

  You are lucky to have a back porch like that. Ours faces the higway...LOL

20 acres to work with, well what do you all want to start with. If you are looking for something easy, chickens need a coop, food, water and a safe place to lay their eggs. Once you eat your homegrown eggs you'll never go back to the old g. store eggs. If you are looking for something bigger, go with pigs or a few cattle. Just remember that you can't just get one of anyhting you need two. They will compete for food and give each other companiship.

No know you all are that fair from us. We are about 30 to 40 minutes south of you. Depending on what you get behind that is.

Come visit me, The Homestead.
