Hey Susan! We have about 1.5 acrea up here in stokesdale. We have chickens, pigs, a large garden and A friend And I co own 2 goats that stay on his land. We are dairly new to it, probly only 2 years in. My wife And I started the garden the first year we moved in and grew from there. I hope to one day lease some land so I can graze a few head of cattle as well. Ive heard of the permaculture society but never had a chance to look much further into it. Between work, 2 kids, church and the land it doesn't leave too much extra time haha.
