CREATE A HOBBY FARM
Given the rise in food prices, and increased interest in healthy nutrition, and wanting to live in a healthy environment and creating a quality lifestyle for your family many folks are looking to buy property to create hobby farms.
Hobby farms are more than a garden, but not quite a conventional farm.
However, they take the operational essence of a fully fledged farm, just customized to fit your property and the lifestyle you want.
Hobby farms can drastically supplement your food and income, and provide the wonderful joy and satisfaction of running your own agricultural operation.
Growing and supplementing your food, or creating an agri-business and generating income, are two of the main opportunities of hobby farms.
Furthermore, your pantry will be overflowing with canned goods, honey, homemade wine, produce, home-cured meats, and farm-fresh free-range eggs.
Your food bounty will vary depending on the focus of the farm.
On this property you have lots of room for a cow or two or more, goats, pigs, chickens, turkeys or even a horse or two.
