I started 4 years ago, and have discovered I want to raise cattle.  I am looking for a 40 acre land, and will probably be selling this 5 acre "turn-key" homestead.  Modern 2 bedroom log house; stall parking, woods, water, and newly fenced pasture.  1000sq ft garden; apple trees, raspberries, rhubarb, asparagus, etc.    Perfect for chickens, turkeys, sheep (I have two), a cow(I have 4) or horses, and a good dog.  Where would I advertise to find like-minded people?  

Thank you.

I started 4 years ago, and have just thrived.   I live about an hour from the Canadian border.   This place is so beautiful.  I started with Chantecleer Chickens, Royal Palm Turkeys, Katahdin Sheep, Scottish Highland Cattle, and a good dog.   It turns out I really want to raise cattle, and am looking for a new piece of land that is at least 40 acres.  
I would be glad to share experiences - about moving from the East Coast (Washington DC)  to a rural zone 3 environment.   I have LOTS of learning that I can share: everything from work boots, snow plows, water lines, and cabin construction.  


Thank you,  Dianne

I will suppress my every urge. But not this shameless plug:
