    What would you choose?
    For me, chickens, poultry of all kinds (of course!), English Lop and mini rex rabbits, Saanen goats, Nigerian Dwarf goats and Scottish Highland Cattle.

    I want a complete heritage working farm, sooooo..........

    Plow / Saddle Mule for the garden and Riding
    Draft Horses or Oxen Team for heavy work
    Chickens , Turkeys, Ducks of course for eggs and meat
    Pigs for meat and to sell
    Milk Cow or Goat
    Cattle for beef and to sell

    That would about do it for me I think. I'm well on my way to a good start now.
    I have a Mule named Kate that we just bought who plows, drives and rides. I have a beef type calf named Lucy to start my herd. I have 10 chickens in the free range flock and I have a sow named Miss Piggy [​IMG]
