I am purchasing 8.1 acres of property in Franklin county that I am eager to transform into a permaculturally designed food farm. I've got sheep/lamb, rabbits, and looking to add egg laying chicken as well. My goal is to set up a very sustainable system that feeds the livestock, myself, and supports a small CSA style farm share operation as well. My desired plant/ tree/ seed list just keeps growing and growing! The property runs along a river and has a variety of plant niches and water movement areas across the face of it. Unfortunately I can't change the long driveway that bisects the proerty! Would be great to find like-minded folks in the area to compare projects, swap plants and seeds, brainstorm with, and just chat about what we've got going on. Let me know who's out there!
Hi Heather, congratulations on your new farm! How exciting. We are in southern Rhode Island so we are not very close but not very far either. I'd love to show you what we are doing and planning on our little three acres. We will be having a seed swap potluck party around the spring equinox, I hope you can come!
Awesome guys, I'd love to see your work thus far. I'm planning a move to New Hampshire in 2018 and am having a bit of difficulty finding good info on cold weather permaculture. I hope you guys succeed in your farming endeavors.
Closing for this property is in 5 days, if no problems or delays pop up. It's 8 acres altogether, sets down off a road, the river is further behind the outbuilding in this pictures. There are already some trees and gardens and fencing in place, will have to wait until spring to really see what is there and what can be done with it all. I hope this photo link works properly:
