good day, i have been in and out of this site for a couple of years and i love it. My husband and i are trying to make our lives more simple by getting rid of some things and we have planted a great garden two years running and this year i want to save some of these veggies and fruits for winter, we are also thinking of getting some animals to raise as food, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!
Thank you,

Now now, y'all, I still eat chicken! Just not MY chickens, lol. Thats Shelbys rabbit, and I would never eat her pet! Never ate rabbit, but I am willing to try anythng, once! Twice if I like it. :)

Rabbits are easy and take very little room,of course some people can't bring themselves to eat them. Even with very little land you could raise a goat or 2 for milk and cheese ,a few chickens for eggs and eating[dieselriders right DON'T TELL KELLYGA]and a pig and a few rabbits. I have a large garden that we cover with straw so almost no weeding and I'm not sure if you could garden in winter like I do with cold frames but it might be worth a try.

How big of a place Sarah? Do you have a few acres that could support a freezer calf? Unless you feed this calf out it will taste a bit different than store bought meat. Grass fed versus corn fed changes the taste. You could get a few chickens.....dont let Kelly know...shes the local "chickens are people too" person here :))
You could feed out a couple of hogs pretty cheap and they wont take up much room.    Posted 08-25-2004 at 05:39:42       [Reply]  [Send Email]
thanks for your replies. We have a large amount of kand approx, 400 acres most of it is wood, we thought chickens would be good, a cow would be nice, but i get attached, so we might have to leave it at someones place besides ours, rabbit meat is not for me, if you have anymore ideas i'd appreciate it.
