I think we might be crazy "city folks", but now that we've built a nice coop and kept our 8 chickens alive for 6 months...we think we can move on to a hobby farm in the future. When we bought this house we were looking for more land than we got (0.75 acres), but internet access was an issue for my husband's job. Five years later, seems like there is more internet being offered in more rural locations, so it seems to be less of an issue.
We live in WI and I homeschool our two children, so we would have time to work on and maintain a hobby farm.
So, right now we have 8 laying chickens, 2 corgis and one black cat. The kids would love to have a lot more chickens and a goat or a sheep. I have NO farming experience and my husband has less, but he's quite handy. Anyone have thoughts or experiences to share??
