I grow my own food with a nice orchard consisting of 14 apple, 3 sour cherry, 3 sweet cherry, 3 pear, 2 peach, 2 plum as well as several types of nut trees and smaller fruit. I built my own greenhouse out of patio doors and I grow veggies year around.
Besides having the plants, I also have a few animals on my place.
1. Honey bees for pollination and the honey.
2. Chickens for the eggs
3. Dairy goats for milk, butter and cheese
4. Pigs that are raised for meat.
5. I am considering combining my greenhouse with aquaponics
In 2017, I raised two pigs as an experiment. I wanted to see how much work and cost goes into raising feeder pigs. The final cost of the pork was much lower then what the supermarket charges and the taste of the meat was superior.
