Intro from Eastern Ontario

I have been bitten with the farming/permaculture bug. We moved from the city (where we lived all our lives) to an 80 acre hobby farm in 2010. I raised chickens (in tractors) for selling for the first time last year and this year we are expanding to turkeys and pigs as well. I have signed up for the Geoff Lawton online PDC because there is SO much I do not know, and I would like to learn. My goal is to one day make a living from my farm, and since I have no preconceived notions on how to do things, I am a sponge soaking up all the info I can to make my "operation" as sustainable and animal friendly as possible.

I have cruised some of the threads and am giddy (yes giddy) with the wealth of information on here. Hopefully at one point I will be able to contribute rather than absorb, but for now I will be up late tonight reading threads.

Welcome to permies.com
If I had that much land I would also focus on animals.
