This web sit is to document my journey of developing 10 acres that my wife and I own in S.E. Michigan. In my web research over the last 5 + years I find information about people with 2 acres or less and people with hundreds if not thousands of acres. This site is focused on land holdings of 5 to 20 acres.
I would like to at least have the ability to be self-sufficient as possible. While I don’t always chose or have the time to do everything my self, I like to know how. I am interested in what is called urban homesteading and this site will document my journey. At this point I am just working on clearing and planing, but I will start adding perennial food plants and trees in the spring 2011.
My son thinks he wants to be a farmer, since this property is on a busy road he is planing on growing and selling fruits and vegetables from our front yard.
