As an adamant advocate of self sufficiency, I would dearly love to procure three to four acres of land and begin to build a small, autonomous homestead. My quandary, however, is the fact that I am merely eighteen and newly graduated from high school. An utter novice to building and sustaining a farm, how unwise is such a course of action? (!) My father maintained a small goat farm in the ‘70’s and is my sole point of reference for homesteading aside from the myriad books I’ve read—I’d love to hear other opinions as to what I ought to do concerning. Thanks!
