I currently have 2 people-friendly livestock dogs, 4 adult dairy sheep, 4 lambs, chickens, muscovey ducks and a few rabbits. I also keep a small garden, but would like to expand my garden to supplement some fresh organic feed for my animals. I have raised rabbits for more than 20 years. I started raising poultry in 2013, and sheep in 2015. I have also raised market hogs as a teen in FFA and American guinea hogs a few years ago. I am able to build and fence what I need.
We are looking for a property to raise livestock and a 2-bedroom house for the 3 of us to live in. Needs to have power and Internet.
I began learning a about agriculture early in highschool classes and after school activities like FFA and 4H. Since then I have worked with sheep, poultry, rabbits and trained my own livestock dogs.
I plan to expand my small flock of sheep so I can sell artisan cheese and hand-painted yarn. I would also want to raise poultry and pork for our own food, as well as growing fruit and forage for year-round use.
