Livestock and Hobby Farming
Small scale subsistence and recreational farming is becoming more and more popular. Raising one’s own livestock can be quite a lot of work, but the reward on your plate later is worth the effort—after all, it doesn’t get much more fresh or local than eggs, honey, milk, cheese, or meat that came right from your own property. You can also be completely assured that the animals that produced the foods you’re enjoying were treated with care and kindness, and that your treats don’t contain any potentially harmful chemicals. If you’re willing to put in the labor, you can keep your fridge stocked with the best quality ingredients all year long.
