First off apologies if this has been asked before. I looked and didn't see this thread so I wanted to get some ideas on what yall think. I'll admit that I am new to the prepping idea. I guess I've had my head in the sand to long but finally see that our great country is to close for my personal comfort to failing economically and ending with widespread "problems". So in order to plan and try to protect my family and myself I'm running 90 miles an hour playing catch up. Over the past couple years I have tried my best to simplify my life and have gotten rid of a lot of debt and excess frivolous material things. This was initially due to being laid off when a company I worked for closed up shop and caused me to take another position making less money. Anyway I am now looking for a piece of land to build a simple but comfortable home on and that I can use as a bug in location. So with that being said I want to know your opinions on how much land do you think is the minimum needed to be able to raise enough food with a garden and raise a few animals for food? I plan to raise some chickens for meat and eggs, I'll also have some rabbits and a hog or 2 every year. I will have to possibly feed as many as 7 but probably no more than 10 people if the SHTF. I grew up out in the country and have had these animals before so I'm confident I can keep enough to keep us in food. That is of course unless the boogey man comes and kills me and takes them all. Thanks in advance for your help.
