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.

I know I definitely wouldny have let it get that bad. Animal welfare is definitely something thats important to me. I just wanted to see if it was even feasible.

yeah the socialization issue was something I was worried about. I definitely dont want a deprived animal socially. I typically always follow by the buddy system when it comes to animals, but I had heard a few stories of people keeping single cows for extended periods of time, so I thought I would ask. But thats why tgis forum is a great tool, you can ask people with more experience. Thanks guys.
