Past and present farming experience:

We started out with chickens (doesn't everyone?)... and more than 4 years later, we now have our chickens and a total of 20 alpacas (11 boys here on our property and 9 females and cria boarded), along with our rabbits and ducks, 2 dog, a turtle, a cat and a partridge in a pear tree... We have a greenhouse where we grow fodder for the animals. Our vegetable farming is hobby at best.

Our goal is to move north where we can obtain more acreage affordably... better options for our alpaca farming (ie to have a farm store and better capacity for visitors)... and a better lifestyle for us and our daughter. We are looking at Oxford County (specifically the towns allowed for Fryeburg Academy... for our daughter).

Here is a summary of the vision for my farming future and/or business plan:

Have to work on that.... I have it in my head, just have to get it managed onto paper. If you have a farm template available, I'd love to see it
