Packing, Holidays, its a little crazy right now....

Well, Survived Christmas. Hope everyone had a happy and blessed holiday.  Whoever decided that moving on Jan 2nd was a good idea was wrong. But, things are almost ready here. At least we found a nice place to stay and its not to far from the farm. I will be trying to keep up with at least a weekly post starting in the new year to let everyone follow along the path and see what I'm learning and doing. Until then, Happy New YearSee More

Next steps in moving forward

First off, Happy Holidays everyone. Hope everyone is taking some time to enjoy family and other blessings in your life this season.  We are trying to the best we can with all the craziness going on here. So since finding out that I am heading to the farm the day after Thanksgiving (blessings), and a week later having signed a lease for a place to live, things are moving really fast. Which is a good thing, but having to pack everything up knowing you are moving in less then a month is really a…See More

Wow, life changes fast.

So, it would appear I'm not very good at keeping up with blogs if there isn't anything going on lol. But, life just got a little bit more interesting. Just to bring ya'll up to speed on what's been going on over the course of time. School, family, work, school, family, rinse and repeat.  January of this year, my little boy was diagnosed Autistic and that took up a lot of our time just working through everything that comes with that and working on getting him the help he needs. While it has…See More

So, details, details, details.

So, first off, thanks for checking out the Blog and the comments.  Hope it wasn't miss leading.  We are not actually starting a farm.  I am starting in the fall back to college on to work on a diary science degree.  Not 100 percent sure on what path I'm going to take, but my three major areas of interest right now are:GeneticsNutritionAnd pasture based diary business models. Not a lot of news to report right now. Just that classes will be starting the end of August and that's what I consider…See More

"Brett, You have my support as if it is what you want to do, go do it.  But, I will say, keeping at least one regular job for the first few years will allow you to put any money made farming back into your operation."

it's always good to see other people wanting to expand their knowledge and their future. what type of farming do you have experience with? how much land and equipment are you starting out with? those are two of the biggest questions I would ask first before striking out on starting a new farm.
