So all of this is for me. But not like you might think. I want a farm. Not like one that has tons of acres filled with growing corn. Or full of cattle. But about 20 acres or so, depending on what I can find, I want to have several things. One is a garden that is organic maybe even certified. I want to be able to feed my family from it but also have some to sell. I also want a small orchard with several kinds of fruit. I want to have a stock pond so that if I want fish for dinner I just go outside and catch some. Around the pond have an area or two where people can fish and have a picnic for a small fee. In the fall I'd love to have a u-pick pumpkin patch with gourds and decorative corn.
I also want to have a few animals: some chickens for eggs, some goats for milk to make cheese and maybe make some health care products as well. Also have a cow or two and a horse maybe a donkey or burro. Just a few animals of different kinds so that I can have a little kind of petting area for when people come to the farm.
Granted this is allot, and it's not the only things I want to do, this is just the tip of the iceberg and it will take time. But this is what really want for myself and my kids.
