I have been asked by quite a few people how much did it cost me to start our farm? It is a good question - and I guess what they really want to know is if it is possible for them to start a farm or a homestead. The next question I have been asked is 'What will it cost me?".

Thats a hard question to answer as so many things come into play. So I wrote a summary of all the major things that you should consider....and I probably missed some importnat ones along the way.

Let me know what you think?


PS - just btw, I love to post these things in here first! I think I have learned so much from this site that I just want to give back!
Don't mess with me you fool! I'm cooking with gas! Here, read this tiny ad:
