Because I like cooking/baking and growing my own food, nice orchard was planted 15 years ago (14 apple. 6 cherry. 3 pear. 3 peach. 2 plum trees as well as walnut trees) as well as growing a lot of small fruit (strawberries. Raspberries. Kiwi. Elderberry. Grapes. Rhubarb. Currents etc.) A lot of herbs (rosemary. Oregano. Chives. Garlic. Etc.) Just started growing mushrooms (shitake) Plus a lot of flowers and veggies.
I have honey bees, chickens, dairy goats, raise pigs for meat and I also have a few other ideas like under my greenhouse start aquaponics for growing fish and I just started growing mushrooms (shiitake)
