SparkPeople Down Home On The Farm! Team Messageboard Hello Friends! Are you a farmer and love to be home where the air is fresh, the gardens are plentiful, and the porch swing is calling your name? Well then, we hope to see you here! SparkPeople Down Home On The Farm! Team Messageboard Greetings! I am trying to get a little farm up an running on my 3 acres here in southern Idaho. I just moved here in March and was successful with a few crops. I currently raise chickens for eggs, meat, insect and weed control. I am looking at possibly adding goats or sheep for dairy next year.

Hello from Indiana! New to the team! Excited to join a team of farmers! We live and work on our farm. We have about 400 acres. Since hubby got ran over by a bull a few years back, we mostly cash rent our fields, but we still have cows, and we still put up hay for cows and horses. Plus we sell a lot of hay. I love farming and the close knit farming community! Sun, 23 Mar 2014 07:15:56 EST Share A Hug And A Motivational Encourageing Msg Hello Friends!
