Hey,
today i went to a local farm by me, Steve (pheasant hollow farm) might of heard of it The Queens County Farm Museum.  Does that ring a bell, steve?

Anyways i had a good time seeing all the animals, then i was looking at the goats, the next thing i was just standing there and thought how much fun it would be to raise some livestock, a change from the bird/poultry raising.  I believe i do have at least an acre or so in my property in NC, just have to check to make sure i can raise some in the future.  I know that chickens and pigs are not permitted, have to check with sheeps and goats. I would have to get a pasture of course.  But i'll have to see once i'm done with pastry school i might just move down there, when the house will be finished of course, and start living my dream once and for all.

Good Luck. Those farming dreams can be real nightmares, and you better have a big pile of this:  $$$$$$$$    ^-^

I'm surprised they didn't try to coral you in with the other animals, thinkin' you was some kind of endangered or newly discovered species.

well depends how you operate the farm, like for example why buy compost when you can make your own, this saves $$$. And so on.........

Good Luck to you :grin:  You can always tell the people who grew up a little more city than country.  My wife (Vegas girl) thought it would be fun to take over my parents dairy farm too, until I told her what my mom's day entailed.  She decided it wasn't such a good idea anymore.  My great grandparents built it though, so I'm still dumb enough to entertain the thought...

I can totally agree with the dairy farm running your life thing... Mom and dad didn't stay married due to it. Mom likes to go, go, go, and Dad can never leave... But a few goats can be manageable. Maybe... Good luck! I wouldn't mind gathering a few myself sometime in the near future. Gotta talk the hubby into it....

Charlie, vacation?? ..   Why go on vacation when you have a farm, if its something you've always wanted then it has to be something you'll enjoy every day, if not then farming isnt for you.  People put themselves in dreams and make them true, if your wanting to go on vacation all the time what was the point of the farm.  The farm should be a place when you enjoy yourself, i know i would.

Yeah, i mean animals especially farm animals bring so much joy in your life, some people can't see that, its all about money.  If i didnt care about one day getting a small farm, i wouldnt do it, but i'm thinking about it.  Especially if you live your life in the city, and you know in your heart that you should be in the country living your dreams, thats the place you should be.  I personally can't stand the city and see myself living a better life soon in the future.  Thanks jaime!!, Good Luck to you too.

more power to you birdlover. check back in 3 or 4 years on the vacation bit. I took a week about 5 years ago, had a great time. came back to a nightmare, caretaker did not take care !  I have a hard time finding time to go hunting or fishing never mind vacation. even so when a local dairy farm went up for sale I found myself wishing I had the money to buy it. go figure ! ???

You're all right. Even though it's a heck of a lot of work, I am thankful that I was able to grow up on a farm and still have that to go to. Wouldn't trade it for the world. I love my critters and it's probably a good thing that Robert keeps me limited with them or I'd have quite the zoo...  007 a24 a26 a27 a28 a31 a34 a38 a40 c109 p42
