After years I am happy to announce that I will be gaining access to a 5 acre property that was an apple orchard.

This property has a house on it with other buildings as well. The property is expandable for an additional 25 acres in the future for a total of 30 acres.

I have decided to remove much of the apple trees on the first 5 acres. I will use the apple trees for hugelkultur beds. I am removing the trees because of numerous reasons. I have weighed the pros and cons. I am happy to hear more pros from anyone.

We want to have chickens, a few pigs and rabbits on the property. Eventually we will have an aqua phonic greenhouse for high yield lettuce and kitchen herb growth.

I want to have PDCs taught on this property. I myself have never taken a PDC. I won't be staying at the house on the property I will commute there. Because of other obligations I have no choice. The house will be for workers and volunteers. I don't know how to set if up. I can't get in touch with local WWOOF people.

I would love to hear all of your thoughts. We get about 550 mm (21.6 inches) of rain per year. The average high is 22 (72) and the average low is -4 (25).

I am very excited about this project. It is 30km outside of the 9th largest city in Europe.
That is a really big piece of pie for such a tiny ad:
