My husband, kids and I are wanting to simply our lives and move in the direction of producers, not just being consumers. We do small scale gardening now, but we are limited on a 1/3rd of an acre. Local zoning laws and our property boundaries have made our producing goals untenable where we are.
Our near term goal is some arrangement where we can contribute and learn from a more experienced farmer, along with our three small children. Long term, a homestead/gentleman's farm would be our goal.
