It sounds like you have it all planed out, and you are doing it all by yourself; you are amazing. Do you know if you have any birch trees on your property? If so, you can tap those just like you can maple trees and make birch syrup. I just found that out this month. Yeah, it's always best to start small with goats from what I hear, though from what folks say, once you start raising goats you never want to not raise them.
I haven't drunk goats milk since I was a child, but I love goats milk cheese and that's what we will be getting goats for once we have some property, meat, milk, and cheese. My mate and I aren't really cow people so if we have any at all it will most likely be only one dairy cow and maybe a meat steer periodically. Goats take up less room, are easier to feed, and the milk is easier for the human body to digest. So goats are an all around must have for us someday.
Your mushroom plan sounds really cool! What a great way to deal with the wood and get a productive food source out of it as well as improving your lands soil fertility; awesome! Sounds like you are into and doing the same sort of thing we want to do, I'm really wishing we were neighbors right about now.
I hope that you can get some more like minded people in around you, it's always best to have a strong community if possible, that way if anything goes wrong or you need some help you have folks you can turn to. I'm so wishing that I had the space and place to work on a garden, I have to admit that I've really been missing it since we got displaced from our old apartment due to a fire across the hall. I used to have a southward facing balcony that I was trying to turn into a micro food forest for us, but I lost a lot of plants when we had to move into a smaller apartment with a northward facing balcony. Though my dwarf fruit tree saplings and my blueberry shrubs made it through okay and are starting to bud out in preparation for the spring so at least I have that.
Keep on sharing your progress, I like being able to live vicariously through other folks if I can't have what I want right now on my own.
Post some photos some time if you can and keep up the awesome work! Take care,
Oh, you can check out what I was doing with my balcony before and up to the fire if you like, I was doing a gardening channel on YouTube called On The Balcony With Kat
that was chronicling my attempts to make my micro food forest. You can check it out here: On The Balcony With Kat
