I do believe that we are well on our way to being at least half way self suffiecient. We have 21 acres that we have 5 horses, 20 goats, and a garden. We will soon have chickens and rabbits. So between the goats, chickens and rabbits we should do well on having meat for the table along with the eggs and milk. We will also on occasion get a pig or a steer for slaughter, plus the deer lease. With the garden wich is vegatable and fruit, oppps almost forgot that we also planted a few fruit trees this year, we should have plenty of veggies and fruit. Now on this land is also alot of dewberry bushes. So with learning to make jellies and how to can fruits/veggies and even meats, plus the dehydrater that we will be getting for jerky, I think we should do pretty well on our own. Does anyone else do this and any tips are welcome. Especially as I am not that handy in the kitchen and just learning how to can/freeze/make just about everything.
