What types of farming operations are of interest to you?
- Large Animal (eg cattle or sheep)
- Small Animal (eg pigs or poultry)
What farming practices do you plan on using?
Please elaborate on the type(s) of agricultural operation you plan on running:
Small farm/ranch for single family homesite. I would like to pasture a small herd of dairy goats as well as a calf(single) or lambs occasionally for meat. I would also like to produce my own eggs as well as rabbits. A space saving raised bed garden and fruit or nut trees would be utilized for herbs and produce. The focus would be on self sufficiency. Any overage would hopefully be sold at local markets. If any item appears particularly profitable, the focus would shift to a more commercial small farm that’s still designed to be relatively self sufficient.
What is your farming/ranching experience?
- I have no farming experience
Tell us more about your agricultural experiences:
- Grew up on a cattle ranch and raised hogs as a teenager in the FFA. I like working with animals and have always enjoyed gardening and plants as well as good quality food. I also like rural communities and am more comfortable around rural people with more traditional similar values to my own.
