Man I have some bad luck. Twice this year I've thought I had a plan to get out of the city and twice my plans have fallen through . I have a friend with 5 acres he is willing to lease me, so I can at least do some gardening and keep my animals even if I'm not able to buy something of my own. He said it's fine for us to put an RV or something similar out there in case something happens and we want to get out of the city for a bit, too. Anyway, back to the reason for my post. I have enough chickens for my family, and if this works out I will get a few more ducks, but i also want dairy goats so I can quit buying store milk. What all do you recommend? I am seeing tons for sale near me, but I don't really know much about goats or what to look for. Can you eat them? If so, maybe a breed of goat that is good for dairy and meat. Any other ideas of what I could do with 5 acres of leased land? There is a well nearby, and a creek, so plenty of water handy. As far as i know, this is flat pasture land. I'm going out to take a look at it this weekend. I hope it works out, I would love to be planning a big garden for the spring.
