I started 4 years ago, and have discovered I want to raise cattle. I am looking for a 40 acreland, 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; appletrees, 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?
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.
