Living Off The Land So You Can Start A Farm
Living Off The Land So You Can Start A Farm. If I could this is how I would do it. There is no wrong or right way but If I had to do it then this is what I would do. You can start a farm on 1/4 on an acre. Could you make it if you had to start all over? I am not sure but I would damn sure try. I would first start and on a hunt and look for some fresh water. I would look for a nice property on the fresh water source. I am not sure on how I would get water to the property but I know I need to have that to survive.
I would love a root cellar to store all of the goodies that I would have canned from that years harvest. I am talking about going wilderness family. I have nothing but wood so I would start cutting down some trees to make my shelter and then store some wood away for the winter. A wood stove would be a must so I could heat my small bug out shelter or my home.
I would hope I would have sufficient tools with me. I would love to have some horses so I could plow the field to plant some great vegetables and beans to grow so I can last during the winter. I would have some chickens, rabbits, cows and pigs. All those animals would need feed. That is when it gets tricky and surviving in the wild becomes a crazy thing to think about. Lol.
I can't forget about my pond that I would have or have built my cabin near. I would hope to have catfish and all kinds of fish to fill my belly if I needed to. That reminds me I would like to have a worm farm so I can have fresh night crawlers at my fingertips. Ohh So many things you need for self reliant living. I am going to have to break this process down in steps. I would plan to start a farm as soon at my shelter was built. I need to practice on my urban survival skills on farming. Next time I will go into detail on the way I would start a farm.
