The wife and I live on 25 acres, all of which is mostly mature open woods in north central West Virginia. In thought, I've always been a permaculturist, but in actions I'm just starting out. We have 6 laying hens and 2 hives of honeybees. We've built one low huglebed close up to our dwelling and planted a few fruit trees with plans for more of each. In my way of thinking, having a forest of oaks, hickories, etc... lends itself to raising free ranging pigs and that is also on the horizon. I'm here to learn, share information, and connect with likeminded individuals.

Welcome to permies.com

I like the idea of doing a little thining in the "forest" and raising pigs.

Welcome to permies John!
 
keep an eye out for scorpions and black widows. But the tiny ads are safe.
