So for those of you who take the time to not only read my blog, but comment on it, please know I am reading your comments and appreciate them greatly.....I just cannot figure out (yet) how to answer the comments back. lol!
If anyone has any questions regarding raising livestock (smaller scale) or landscaping, please ask. I have a degree in Horticulture and Design, and have been involved with raising cattle (dairy and beef) for over 10 years, first as a small commercial dairy (and I do mean small, but big enough to have the milk truck stop every other day...) and currently with raising registered miniature Herefords here on 22 acres since 2005.
We started this farm literally from the ground up, with nothing but a house in the middle of overgrown fields. It all started with the overwhelming desire to be a good steward of the land I was fortunate to be blessed with, and, a post hole digger.....one hole at a time, then two, then six; 4x4 posts, crosspieces, etc, a small barn.... A digging bar and a pile of 150 plus locust posts brought up from Pa by friends, and a fenceline was begun, ten holes at a time.....wire pulled off a spool held with a piece or re-rod stuck in the ground, fence wire went up. 150' feet underground electric buried by hand from the house to the barn....
Easy, not really....gratifying......absolutely!
