Instead of living in a master plan community that surrounded a golf course, how about a farm instead? You could walk and get your raw dairy and fresh eggs. It sounds like a good idea to me.
I recently moved to the Bay Area from NYC, and I am looking for a new supplier of grass-fed beef (or other pastured meat). Preferably I would like to buy an entire cow, to save as much money as possible. I have a car and am willing to travel to... (more)

So I'm thinking of going into farming and I definitely want to have my farm focused on all things paleo. I already have some ideas- livestock centric with hardy "wild-type" breeds, grazing fields, fruit and nut trees, perhaps some vegetables or... (more)
