We are new to this all too and we started with chickens. They are wonderful and fun to have. Each one has her own unique personality. I highly recommend handeling them ALOT when they are tiny babies because all that attention definately pays off once they grow up!

  Do you guys use the net wrap? How do you like it if you all do?

Just purchased a bailer that can net wrap, people say we won't ever go back to twine. Won't know until we get some hay on the ground.

  2011 History
We brought the farm, no pun intended, on September 30, 2010. We started required repairs in October 2010 since this was a foreclosure and had been vacant for 2 years. Then we began deconstruction of the farm house in January 2011 and reconstruction in April. We finished the house and moved in partially the beginning of November. We stayed here off and on during the cooler months in the fall and finally moved my wife's work from home office. It took from September 2011 to November to make sure we could function, but we finally succeeded. Our first Christmas dinner at the farm used borrowed tables and chairs from our Church to be able to seat our family. I used Great Grandmoms Roasting Pan for our turkey. The view out the dining room window features the tree and the big pond.

We also completed the hay barn and moved the tractor and equipment in the barn. I will start slowly to take over spraying the weeds and fertilizing the fields in 2012. So we will cut, bale and deliver square bales and round bales.

Need to bushhog the Johnson Grass around the fruit trees and blueberry bushes in March 2012. In the meantime we are trying to sell the house in Charlotte, finish the barn road and connect it to the field road. And sometime finish the landscaping around the farmhouse. No hurry, no worry.
