11. Ditto in SC.

Glad they are keeping this one. I couldnt' bear it if I couldn't read here about the chickens and goats. My ten year old great granddaughter loves it too, and insists she's gonna be an organic farmer, grow goats, and make cheese.

13. Semi-rural

but the town will eventually be swallowed up into a suburb, with the current rate of growth.

Oh, and dreaming of the day when I can have a small acreage to myself.

Dog? Hell, that ain't no dog. That there is a redneck security system. Tell you what. If I'm not home, see if he'll let you in the house without taking your arm off. I got a hundred dollars for you if you live.

23. New to the group

have a small 2.2 acre place in the woods in Truro. A yurt, chickens, large garden and commercial
size greenhouse. Trying 4 season for the first time. Passive Solar, have chard- kale, lettuce growing
like crazy. Using bales of hay outside of the GH for insulation. Employing lasagna gardening layering of
nitrogen/ carbon this fall to help ammend the soil. Have lots of access to seaweed. Labor of love.

Looking forward to learning/ sharing with this important group!

Namaste

25. Checking in from rural NE Kansas.

52 acres of heaven, if you love to work on the land that is definitely my definition of heaven Horses, goats, dogs and cats and lots of other critters who wander through and never go hungry when on my land. Big grass pastures, lots of trees and ponds and a big big sky.

Hi all, I mostly lurk here but do post from time to time. The things I learn while here are valuable and I am so happy we are moved over and not deleted. I think I subscribed way back when we were allowed in for a while, will check and subscribe if not already.

36. Checking in



I have lived in rural south central / southeast PA my whole life and I am not happy unless I can see farm animals out my window and hear frogs peeping at night. Lots of my friends were farm kids when I was growing up and I spent a lot of time on farms but have never lived on one.

I am a wannabee/dreamer... currently I live next to a farm on about an acre. My dream is 10 -20 acres with chickens and a couple sheep/goats and possible some other animals.

I like the quiet country life and animals and OPEN SPACE around me.

Not so good at growing stuff... but I still have time to learn and am thinking about some vegetable growing experimentation in the future. And maybe fruit trees.

Cities.... blah. Nice to visit. For short periods of time.

42. Got a Perch last fall - she's a piece of work

Bought her at sale, fellow said, she's kind of too slow for my gelding. I hitched her and pulled some logs, she had me all over the field. Felt like I spent the day wrestling a bull.

She'll be bred to a Freisan, they make the most beautiful stock you've ever seen. Going back next week for a Belgian gelding to match my Belgian mare. I'd like a matched team, but boy, does he have to be pretty, cuz Angel sure is.

43. hi everyone

I am in mid-Georgia...not heavy ag, but mostly pine farming and small cattle enterprise, but definitely rural. Born in Atlanta, I have been out here about 12 years. It is much like when south Atlanta was still rural, before the insane race for the airport to be the busiest in the dam world! SO....hello to everyone!
