I am 23 year old male and am looking to get away i was raised in the country and hate the city. I have children and can understand that a full time profit farm is far from hand but i want to get to that point. i am looking at land near nashville and want to start a nice farm maybe 20 acres or 40 at the most for start up. i am pretty green under the thumb and some equine experience but in my opinion horses are more for hobby and less of a money maker. can anyone shoot some ideas with some tips on easy start ups on a farm? the areas i am looking at are livestocking pigs and when a little more on my feet some cattle. as for others i was talking to my god mother and she brought up gardening and foliage. i have been looking at trees that give good bloom and nice vine flowers that i can use to buetify my farm yet also sell in a farmers market with our candels and other crafts.
sooooooooo long story what would yall say is feesable i am more than willing to answer q and a and maybe get some nice insight i tried to reach out to the circles here but everyone seems to hold a secret “on the next runner up that will take bread off there table”
basic low down of the farm will be
*livestock (what kind and what kind of profit can be made form it)
*foliage (is there a profit here besides the obvious sight on the homefront)
*and also a last tidbit i have read a little adn always been curious maybe beekeeping i hear there honey sells well and also there good for the foliage.
ill have to look into the community that helps and hits home one something i would be interested in.
as for the goats if memory serves me they can destroy pastures pretty quick so what would you recomend for keeping there stomachs full and my fields lush and green lol like i said if memory serves me are they not like sheep and eat all the way down to the root which would result in me replanting fields every year or two but i am in agreement goats are something i might have overlooked for the fact of there produce and there meat value…….
