My name is Chris, i'm 51. My wife and 2 grown kids have lived a simple life on our 10 acre farm for over 20 years. We have horses, min. donkeys, about 20 free range chickens, some guinea fowl, and ducks. We have cut/split/stacked/burned about 5 cords of hardwood every year we have been here, and have a 40'x60' barn filled with motorized projects and tools. We just self built a 60'x104' pole barn to house all the animals, with stalls across one end, and an indoor riding arena. I would like to build a greenhouse soon, and have a big garden. We have a 100yd shooting range out back that friends and us practice on.
We have a small arsenal, but would like to make further preparations for the future with all that is going on in the last 7 years (read into that what you want).
