Why A Half Acre?
Because that was all we could afford! Two years out of bankruptcy our choices were limited! But we found out pretty fast..that managed properly, a half acre would take us a long way down the road to self reliance. We still dream of more land. We may get some one day, But right here, right now is where we are! On this half acre we drink fresh goats milk, eat our own pork, chicken, turkey and Chev ( goat meat). We have fresh eggs and our garden gets bigger every year! We tap our maples for syrup and have bee hives for honey! Not all our Animals get pasture. But they all get Fresh Green barely fodder from our sprouting system. We harvest, and process a LOT of own food . You would be AMAZED what a half acre can yeild naturally!
It's ALL good!
