We're looking at buying land and starting a homestead in five years. For reasons beyond my control, we need to stay in an area where land prices are ridiculously high, limiting the size of the parcel we will be able to purchase. I'm a bit of a rookie, but I have a general idea of what I'm wanting to do, and was wondering if anyone could give me a rough idea of what is feasible on a 10-15 acre parcel. Here's the short list: I'd like to raise highland cattle. For meat and milk for our own use, and maybe for the odd animal to sell. I'm thinking 5-7 animals maximum. I'd like to raise sheep for wool and meat. 10 animals maximum. We'll be raising egg chickens as well as running 50-100 broilers in tractors each year. rabbits, maybe 20 tops I'd like to keep bees. We'd like a woodlot big enough to provide around 4 cords of wood per year. I'd like a small pond that's big enough to raise fish in. Not attached to the kind of fish, except for not wanting carp. We'll want a big garden. We're very much in the planning process right now, and I'm just trying to figure out how much I can do on the least amount of land. There are per acre livestock limits here that don't apply on parcels bigger than 8 acres. But I'm not wanting to crowd things. Any advice would be appreciated.
