I’ve been noticing these holes popping up all throughout my yard… what are they?! I swear last year there were only maybe a few. Now I have these all over. submitted by /u/chawks24 [visit reddit] [comments ..read more

We are currently in negotiations to buy 20 acres. After considering a few options, we think shipping containers may be the way to go when building stuctures. Any thoughts? Tips? submitted by /u/Psychological_Ant488 [visit reddit] [comments ..read more

What's your experience been like with MachineryPete, Tractor Zoom, BigIron, etc?

Curious if there’s anything that could be improved within the farm equipment marketplace space. Any pain points you’ve experienced consistently with these marketplaces (desktop or mobile)? I don’t have much experience in agriculture/homesteading so this would be a great opportunity to learn while hopefully solving problems. Would love if anyone can point me in the right direction to resources – thank you in advance! submitted by /u/funkadelikz [visit reddit] [comments ..read more

Moving up from chickens/guineas to goats. Advice wanted in Virginia

We have had chickens and guineas for about ten years now. For the past couple years, I have debated on some sort of ruminant, mostly between sheep and goats. But I kept getting nervous about how easily things like sheep find ways to die/worms/etc. I’m tired of the scare stories and am just going to jump in with nigerian dwarf goats. We have just over ten acres, at a dead end, closest neighbor is a quarter mile away. I have no mentors (been looking for years), machinery other than a four wheeler, and the extension offices are useless. Anyways, if I build shelter, will they actually use it or w ..read more

Ethical dairy cow for homestead

Hi all, I’m new to homesteading but have always wanted to keep a dairy cow for my family. I am a huge animal lover and the idea of taking a calf away from its mother has always made me upset. Do cows generally overproduce milk where both the calf is able to feed and I am also able to milk the cow or is it a the case where the calf will drink the entirety of the heifers milk? I would love to keep a dairy cow in an ethical way that is both fair on the animal and my family. submitted by /u/WinMajor6463 [visit reddit] [comments ..read more

Introducing chicks to hens

So I have my original flock in the coop, down to two hens. I have 6 new chicks, all about a month maybe month and a half old and their feathers are starting to come in. They are starting to out grow their brooding box and so I’ve been trying to get them cozy with the hens, but they aren’t having it. One of the hens will straight up peck at them and chase them. I tried putting the chicks in the coop while the hens were sitting in there perched but they just pecked them a bunch, had to pull them out. So what should I do? Have two separate coops? Wait longer til they’re grown? submitted by /u/D ..read more

Clearing dead forest advice.

Not sure if this is the best place to post but I’m looking at possibly coming into a large chunk of acreage. Thankfully the majority of the land is old hardwoods and I don’t plan to touch any of those trees. On the upper portion there is about 8 acres of pine trees that were planted by a logging company after intensive clear cutting (no old growths left in this area) And in typical fashion they did a very bad job doing so. The trees are all about 6-12 inches apart and as such are all dead/dying. Due to the spacing it makes it physically impossible to access this land without some aggressive c ..read more
