    Welcome to BYC! I hear you on the annoyance of how our food is processed and inhumane treatment of animals. It will be very interesting to hear about your farming adventures. Best wishes to you on your endeavor!

    So you are originally from Greece? Growing up we had neighbors who were Greek and they used to have the most incredible celebrations where I was introduced to a lot of the Greek culture and, most importantly, the FOOD!!!

    This forum is so amazing you guys and girls are so friendly its like the "kind people forum" [​IMG]
    i've been reading you long enough guys just now had to clear something and needed to post
    as i said am in the planing part managing space in farm (maybe you should know that my farm is not biger than mostly 20 acres)
    some times its really fustrating the dificulties that you meet and as i mentioned the lack of recycled materials gives me a headace as am trying to keep costs low,
    as am trying to house all the animals 20 sheeps,40 ducks,20 chickens,3-10 geese, 5 goats, a couple pigs, i should choose pure breeds of europe and breed them up as am expanding in the future!!!!
    all these animals will be fed from organic feeds and grazing grown 100% from me!!!
    So probably from february i will start posting pics of the constructions :D

    Sounds like the beginnings of a great adventure for you - with the animals you have planned you would do well with rotational grazing which maximizes the benefits each species can take from the space available as one species moves to the next tract and a new species is moved in.
