I live on 9 acres here in the Nor-Cal foothills. My wife and I have a single wide, And my widowed mom has a double wide, plus i have a 60 x 40 metal shop concrete slab floor insulated walls, that is my man cave. We have fenced the outer borders on all sides. the only water we have is a good well electric pump / storm run off / 4,000gl poly water tank. looking to add more water storage. also looking to add a hand pump to the well. guess you could say i'm a beginning prepper. we have food storage and firearms for protection and food gathering. my man cave has wood buring stove for heat and cooking, it also has a freezer / fridge / the food / guns n ammo / sleeping area / water on the outside. I am kinda working on plumbing inside water and drainage, a toilet would be ideal. but anyway i have all this land about 1/3 is level enough to use. I have never worked with livestock, but i need to star somewhere.

Hi allienfuel and welcome to our little corner of the world. Sound like you've got a good start on prepping. Do you have any lifestock or do any gardening? You'll find that this is an awesome group, so feel free to jump in anywhere.

Howdy and welcome allienfuel. Sounds like a good start, food, water, shelter and storage. Heat and cooking from renewable fuel is also a great start.

Livestock...needs pasture, shelter, and constant source for fresh water. Depending on the livestock chosen, and pasture needs you may also need suplimental feeds.

Good luck with this project

Thanks guys. No livestock yet but looking at getting started soon. chickens first soon as i get a coop built then goats, goats work like weed eaters for fire prevention so their kinda dual purpose. we have a small garden we have real poor soil. lots of rock and clay and very iron rich. every year we import more and more soil

Welcome. You might want to start composting to get nutrient-rich dirt for your garden. Now that we have chickens, we have lots of wood shavings and manure to compost, and we plan to use it for our garden this year. Our land is rocky, so we need good soil as well.

Chickens will help with enriching the soil. Smile We raise chickens and nigerian dwarf goats.

Allienfuel did not stay long, sadly. I hope these new postings ping his mailbox and cause his return. This thread is a little over a year old.
