It’s time for us to get a farm, not a huge farm just a small bit of earth. You know how you just know and we know. Once we open the door to this possibility all sorts of wisps of opportunity will usher in. Where will this dream of sustainable living take us? I don’t know if it will happen in one year or five but it’s coming. I would prefer that we build our own house that has passive solar and is also wind and water powered. It could even be an earth home but that might be tough being so close to the ocean. Other than that it can be very simple but I would like to have a few modern conveniences.
We need land to raise chickens, hogs, goats, meat chickens, rabbits, and of course our bees. This would not be a quick transition it could be one that takes years but it is so important to get a clear vision of your dreams so here is mine.
1 Farmette/ Mini Farm – (5 – 9 acres)
Driving Distance within 20 minutes of my work
Pond or Creek so we can have ducks and geese
As I get closer to this dream I will post more and more details of this vision….this is just to get the ball rolling. I think mulling over the details is important so as we get closer to this dream we will know it when we see it.
What do you think? Do you already homestead a small patch of land? Do you have any input or advice to offer us? I would love to hear from you.
Keep on Dreaming to all of you who are like me dreaming of your farm….
