I've not made much cash money with my homestead but I've made some great trades that I've been very happy with. I raise wild pigs, heritage chickens, and eggs in sufficient quantity to sell or trade. My best trades this year have been a weaned piglet (dressed) for 2 big Caribbean lobsters and 2-3 pounds of crab claws. Yummy! :yeeha: That might have retailed for $50. And two almost new tires for my Jeep (new retail for $105 each) trade for a dozen eggs bi-weekly or so. Cost me just $20 to have them mounted. I like trading a lot. Never know what I will get. I've had to turn down some good trade offers for livestock that I didn't have a place for. What has been your experience?
