Well I guess I will start out by saying hello. I am a 24yr female that is just starting out. I purchased 8 acres this year and have been getting it ready to start my off grid farm. I am a Union Carpenter and purchased my land on contract for deed for a good deal. Sadly I purchased late in the year so I will not be able to start building till next year and the city has made getting anything done next to impossible. Anyways I am looking to do a mix of prepper/off grid. I am going to get my first set of cows next year and my chickens. I also want my farm to run off a mix of solar and wind but I need to do more research before I delve into that mess.
