lol, I loved the Ponderosa!
We are considering doing for profit. Would like to have cattle, chicken (layers & broilers), a dairy cow, 2-3 pigs, greenhouse (hydroponics).
Hubby is a nuclear engineer, master carpenter, plumber, electrician, mechanic sort of a jack of all trades. I'm the gardener. The one area we are not familiar with is cattle.
We are researching now to see if it would be possible to be profitable. In 2 years we should have 500K to purchase land etc. We are planning on only having to borrow operating cost for the first 2 years. I would like for it to be an organic farm although that will take a couple of years and have grass fed beef. I would like for it to be self-sustaining in the long run. We are looking at this as a long term investment for our children. Hopefully this will be their inheritance one day.
I'm look at North GA, or NE Ga into Ala.
