    I had a good long talk with DH last night and he has agreed that we can turn our 40 acres into a small farm, and now says he will help with the chickens too. I have been wanting this all of my life and am so excited I can hardly stand it. Just wanted to share, still have to come up with an implementation plan etc.!!! :worship: :worship: :worship: :worship: :D

    Way cool!

    You realize, of course, that you will be the one doing most of the work? :p

    No biggie, though.

    I am also a beginning farmer. :D I am starting out with vegetables and bee hives. Last year and this year are for setting up and learning, next year is for breaking even, and the year after that is for trying to turn a profit. We have 5 acres.

    Wonderful, sisterpine!!! :dance: I am so excited for you!!! There is nothing more enjoyable that sitting down with a big, empty canvas and millions of possibilities!! It can be overwhelming at times, but there is nothing more rewarding!!!

    We want updates!! :D

    Hi SisterPine,

    Congratulations, big time.

    There's nothing like realizing a DREAM, after working hard, to make it HAPPEN.
    I hope you have a lot of fun with the planning & execution.
    Sometimes the "DOING" is the FUN part.

    My husband "allows" me to homestead but does very little of the day to day work, although he does help out occassionally like roughing in my new chicken house and tilling the garden...but most of the work is up to me.

    He grew up on a farm and doesn't want the work now....when all I want to do is homestead!

    Start SMALL and don't take on too much and too many animals all at once. If you do you will be overwhelmed. Take everything in small steps. good luck!
