That sound great in theory, but it’s tough to pull off. I’ve got 50 acres here in TX, and my brother lives on my parents place with 135 acres 20 miles away. Between us, we‘ve got two stocked ponds, cows, chickens, two gardens and A BUNCH of deer, and we’re far from self sufficient. It may just be that we’re not doing it right.This is kinda the plan for me and the old lady. Here in a few years we’re planning on buying a nice piece of land, at least 40 acres. We’ll sell 2-5 acre plots to my mom and sister, her mom, and her sister. Then we could have me raise a few cows and goats, and everyone else raise a few chickens and gardens. Combine that with a pond and each other’s strengths and we could be borderline self sufficient.
