Limberlost Farm produces free range organic goats milk and chevon, and I’d like to expand by planting a 1/4 acre of vegetables. My goats have been ranging the old pastures nearby but I’ve been asked recently to corral them. I have a 3 acre pasture of barbed wire fencing that needs to be fenced with goat fencing. It will take 3 rolls of fencing at $225 each to accomplish this. I’ve been trying to get my farm sustainable but without the fencing, I’ll need to sell all of the goats but a few (I put together a 1/8th acre of pallets for fencing).
I worked nearby at a sawmill and traded that work out for an old farm tractor and pickup that run good- but I need 2 implements, still, to use it for producing organic vegetables – a plow and an auger for digging fence holes. I can find these used for just a couple hundred dollars each.
I’ve been producing food for myself and my two sons, but I’m ready to hit the farmers market and bring this good, clean food to others. Fencing and a plow should do the trick! Almost there!
I have no reward to offer other than my thanks.
