    I live right outside of Charlotte, NC and raise goats, sheep, rabbits, ducks, and chickens, was well as a garden. I am looking for others in the area with similar interests.

    Hi Matthew,

    Welcome! I'm near Blowing Rock. Was born & raised in Charlotte. I only have a small garden, blueberries, raspberries & blackberries right now. I grew gourds this year to sell to a crafter friend. Plan on getting chickens next year.

    Hey, Matthew. I'm north of Raleigh, not far from VA line. I play at homesteading (chickens, gardening) and serve as "relief calf feeder" on weekends for DH, who is the real farmer in the family (dairy). I have a crowd of dogs, two foolish cats, and would love to have some goats, but you have to draw the line *somewhere*! Welcome to the forum.

    I'm over over east, just south of Fayetteville.

    There's an NC forum available, although it's fairly new, and not a lot of traffic yet. I haven't been keeping up with it myself as well as I'd like to. Give it a shot (but don't abandon this place!)
