I am really a naturegal stuck in a big city. I have always had the need to travel. I have always wanted a small farm. I have, for several years, been trying to get a small "farm" going on our 120' x 40' lot. I have looked into bees. I would love to have a bee hive. Not just for the honey, but to be able to watch the hive grow and come and go throughout my day. In doing research on this possible project, I have found that I would have to have the hive set up about 2 feet from my house. It would have to have a fence around it, so the bees could go straight up and out instead of going out horizontally through the yard and then to the neighborhood. I have still longed to order my queen bee and drones in a box and set up my little honey making dream.
Then there is the chicken dream. I don't think that is just a pipe dream. I have done more encouraging research on that. I have found out that I can get a one chicken with out a permit. I will have to restyle the playhouse into a chicken coop. I am going to go to a class on this in about a week.
I also would like a sheep to harvest my own wool. I know that this is not possible right now. I don't have the room, we have no grass, and wool on sheep gets brittle and not so good for looming when the sheep gets older.
Last but not least I would LOVE a buffalo. I think that they would be absolutely fantastic. I just love watching them. I love reading about them. I just love them.
