We have a small homestead of eight acres, about five are woods. The woods have been neglected for decades, and need tending. Lots of weed trees, brambles...lots of work ahead.

Our soil has a lot of clay, so we're using BTE to condition it.

We've put in our little orchard this year. Apples, pears, plums, and cherries, along with blueberry bushes and currants. We also have about 30 young, middle aged, and older black walnut trees. We're hoping to add some English walnuts next spring.

This spring we got our first chickens, and next year we plan to add rabbits.

Hoping to meet some like-minded people, and learn a lot.

I live near Albany IN on 7 acres. I have 10 Buff Orphington hens and a rooster named Ralph Stanley. I have apple trees and about three acres is meadow that the deer love and all the bees and butterflies with the wild flowers. The land was not kept up for years before I bought it. Spent many years to slowly clean up and clear. Looks like a different place from what I bought.
