Hello, it's time for me to start looking into careers! I DESPERATELY want to own land and make money off of it. One of my biggest nightmares is ending up with a desk job. The only thing I can imagine myself being happy doing is something involving animals. I know it's hard to make enough money off of animals to support yourself, but anyone's suggestions are appreciated. I am trying to think of smart, "simple" ways to make all the money off of land that I can. Obviously I will need a job that will help me save up enough money to buy land, build on land, buy necessary equipment, etc...,but in the long run I want to start my own business. So far I like the idea of: Growing Christmas trees Having a pumpkin farm Owning a small petting zoo Running a pond for fishing, selling bait and renting out polls, offering to clean and prepare fish for eating Sheep herding for urban dogs Raising sheep for meat and wool Raise and sell other types of lower maintenance animals Allow people to stay in a cabin and live off the land for a week type of thing Animal boarding Dog training Grow vegetables and sell them at farmer's markets Doggy boot camp, for your plump, furry friend! As soon as I found out these places existed, I wanted to one day run one. Anyone who has a business like this, knows of a good business like this, or has any suggestions, please post!
