Home - What to Consider First

Whether you’re sure you want to spend your life caring for animals or with your hands in the dirt, or if you’d just like to live in the country, the first thing to do is identify WHERE you want to farm. Since the soil can be the most valuable natural resource and the most limiting factor on a farm, be sure to learn more about the soil types on the property before you rent or buy.
