Farming stuff....

We went to look at the land in Tennessee that was really cheap. Well, there's a reason things are cheap and that's lack of quality. It was clear cut mountain land. Nary a flat spot on 3500 acres. Good veiws of the Tennessee River in some spots, but those spots had been sold. It looked really bad since it had been clear cut. For an investor this is a bargain. However we are not investors and we don't have 10 years to wait till this land comes back to forest or woods.

We have been scouting around locally but haven't found anything yet. We haven't been concentrating on it due to lack of time.

Thursday we were in Valdosta Georgia attending an Agricultural conference. Seems we are on the cutting edge of a movement back towards small farms. Seems people are tired of huge farm conglomerates that produce massive quantities of tasteless food. My husband has said for years that he doesn't eat chicken from the grocery because "I've tasted chicken and that ain't chicken!".

SO, things are shaping up and looking good. We are attending another conference soon. This one will be on meat goats. We are pretty excited.

Hey! I posted about farming and chickens today too! One of my bantam hens left me a surprise today.

Hope you find a farm soon.

You might want to try some of the areas of sourthern Virginia and North and South Carolina as well. There's lots of nice land in southern VA.

We can't really move more than a few hours a way. :-( Payson's mom's health is not good. I am originally from VA, and it is beautiful.
