Hi, I'm in NW MO. DH used to always talk about buying a house in the country but he hates doing outside work so I always discouraged it but now I think it'd be fun to start a small sustainable farm. Do you know if MO gives out grants for that? I just started reading about them myself. I'm inspired by Joel Salatin of Virginia. I've read a few articles by him and about him.
P/S My hubby is a little that way. Well, actually I should say that he loves outdoor stuff but the job he has now is inside as a supervisor, working 12 hours. So he doesn't get a whole lot of time outside either way, but when he is home he's much more in the mood to relax then to do farm work :-p (I guess I can't blame him!) Just encourage your guy, he might surprise you Good luck, with whatever you do! I'm sorry I can't be of any help with the grants thing
I'll have to look into Salatin, I know the name is familiar but I can't place him right now :-p If you have the time to listen to a Podcast, there is a GREAT one called "Geek.Farm.Life" and it's about these two city peeps who moved to the country and have a small farm. Their PC's are ALWAYS fun and informative and something that kids could listen to, too and probably enjoy. And another of my favorite 'green' PC's is WigglyWigglers (from the UK). It's like listening to old friends chat about the farm and garden, and wildlife.
Well, I think I've rambled enough for a while
Blessings to you and yours!
Cool. Thanks, I didn't mean to try and change this thread to something else. Turns out there's already a sustainble, organic farm near me. I want to go check it out the they haven't called me back. I guess I'd have to offer different products. I'm an artist too so I could have a farm/art gallery/art studio this is that farm http://www.quietwatersfarm.com/
This is Joel Salatin's farm http://www.polyfacefarms.com/
