I, my dad and sis have a Farm with 50 cows, 5 goats, 2 pigs, 8 rabbits, 50 chicken, 5 cats and 1 dog.
We dont live from the farm. The amount of money that they eat is also coming back from them.
To bring money in our pockets we have a recreation farm. That means a Camping on the farm, Birthday party, Family partys etc etc.
Our main people our kids till the age of 12 and we try to tech them how a farm and animals and nature works.
Lots of kids dont know where there meal comes from. It doesnt pay much. But to give people a good day brings lots of joy into live.
I love to be outside and work in all the seasons it brings me to live. We dont have any forest on our grounds but I try to get out 1 once a month with a small bushcraft club.
All the gears comes in handy for the farm work so thats also a plus.

I do bugger all at the moment, home Dad, so I get a bit of time to play in the garage, garden and local woods when the nippers are asleep or bored and need entertaining by my woeful attempts to make things or identify anything that might be useful :-D
