5 Acres is the place to Be

Are there any folk making good use of five acres? If so, how so?

Hi and welcome,

I personally have a fair sized property and breed goats and cattle, but a couple of folk I knew, had some good success using their small acrerage for their own food supply and to selling some produce too. One grew mushrroms in a shed, the other grew hydroponic lettuce and sold to local restaurants.  The spent mushroom compost sells readily to home gardeners too. Just a couple of thoughts.

 

Cheers,

Barb
