    Ok so my senior project idea is due on 5/22/09. The idea i came up with is an organic farm. I will sell farm fresh eggs, chicken meat, vegetables and, maybe goat milk and pork at the local farmers market. I would have to keep a record of all sales and costs to run the farm(the written part). I will have to document all of the animals and how i am keeping them(housing and such) All of this will be put into a digital portfolio.

    How does this sound. Any suggestions are welcome.
    Thanks

    Hahaha I do not go to an aggi school or anything. And i am the only kid who has farm animals. So i wanted to do something i know no one will do and have it be unique. Also i want to go to collage to get an agriculture degree (@ unh thompson school of agriculture) So i figure since my grades are not straight A's this will look really good.

    Farmer I think it is a fantastic idea and you will learn so much doing it all too. It is a large undertaking but I sense it is something you are passionate about. GO FOR IT!!!! We are all here to help you when the time comes!!!

    I think its an awesome idea! Make sure you plan on raising some meat birds and selling them, too. Although I think in some places you have to be licensed to sell the meat at the farmers market.
