    does anyone with small acg. grow any of their own corns..soybeans..wheat..ect to use for own animals..or use.? not talking large crop farming..have fields all around me being rented out to crop farmers..which is okay..but..have been considering for next years ways to be more self sufficent..less relying on store boughten feeds..and even wheat to mill into flour..knowing the hard work & time envoloved..and i am truely under-stating those..wanting to do this..age..has its set backs..and advantages...lack of any real farm equipement of my own..will be searching for ways to do this..with basically nothing more then two goods hands..and a desire to make it happen. is so much simpler to go to store & buy what i need...but..this is my next step in being independant....if anyone is doing this..would love to hear what you can recommend..what to avoid...
