    My wife and I live in Louisiana we unfortunately have no children we are both in in our late 30's early 40's. This is my first go at a farm type environment but I have worked out side most of my life, but my wife was raised on and worked on many farms. We raise rabbits some pet breads and some meat breads. And we have as of 2 years ago started growing our own garden (last year it was 100' x 50' will be larger this year). My wife has always been an animal lover in our 13+ years of marriage we have had many pets and she has a green thumb, and loves a challenge. I'm and electrician and plumber by trade/training and learning carpentry.
