Farming in general is in beef in Missouri. Homesteaders either have to go Sep Holtzer or raised beds, in my observation. We are planning on raised beds and lots of composting. The good thing is that the growing season is relatively long.
whisperingrankins, Up until my parents got sick and we had to take care of them, we were planting about 3 acres and doing the farmers markets, canning and feeding the neighbors. Now that both are gone, we will be going back to that, but I'm afraid it will be kept in the neighborhood.
Looking for land in the area. We found 10 acres of pasture near Theodosia or 6 on the lake. Waiting for some information on both. Anyone know of anything else we need to consider?
We're an independent and agile older couple not afraid of a project. We try to prep in all ways. We garden, raise animals and fill freezers, canning jars or mylar bags like our lives are depending on it because they are. We have the mindset, tools and toys you might want and need in a neighborhood these days. We even have solar panels and batteries just waiting for a sunny spot.
