Geez I wish we had a farm so we could produce enough to sell and provide our own income. That's what we'd really love to do. I guess I'll start picking up a few more chickens here and there so we have more eggs to sell and incubate and try selling some of the babies, as well as breeding both of our rabbits at the same time so we can sell rabbits too. It won't be much but it will be another step toward the goal. Anyone know of a source to sell tanned rabbit skins?
If you check Craig's list for NW Ok. there is almost nothing on there so the market should be wide open. As far as I know there are no poultry swaps or anything like that close.
Finding a place around Enid has been tough. Found a 30 acre patch for 6K an acre but there were covenents with it, like no critters. Found a place on East Market street just East of Enid, 53 acres for 150,000. Be a good buy if it didn't flood in that area. And some of the high priced stuff is not good ground either, that's why it's pasture. If it's disturded by working it up it blows really bad and in wet years it gets really boggy. I wonder if the realestate agents are disclosing that. LOL I have taken a 4wd tractor or our Cat to pull people around on the very places that they are putting in big houses.
When we were in the area in the early to mid '90s land could still be had for 1000 an acre and there were farm houses to rent. Not any more. People up there act like there is a boom going on or something. Nearly caused a scandel when a farmer gave 250,000 for a quarter back in about '90 and that place had a feedlot and working alleys on it for cattle.
