I don't think we were meant to live this way. I bought some chicken breasts yesterday, they weighed over a pound each for 4 breasts. I will now ingest the hormones they gave the chickens. Cars all over the place yesterday. Mind numbing hypnosis, encouraging everyone to buy stuff. I have a book called "5 acres and independence". You can support yourself, grow all your own food, on 5 acres. It would be my dream come true. No more waiting in line like cattle at the time clock. Going to bed when the sun goes down and getting up when it rises

Hey Moses i agree with you on the way society has evolved completely......i think however its illegal in the chicken industry to use hormones, the size of the chickens these days are the product of very Intensive & successful breeding practices......now antibiotics in the meat industry, thats a different discussion....lol

I recall the farms worked on as a youth.
And was reminded of them as I labored in synthetic dirt and industries after.

Attending a class for an industry's cause of equipment /machinery there was a young former Amish. To me that means Amish , but not to the Amish...
He was mechanically inclined ,and ambitious curiosity helped advance that interest.
One of the first "things" he acquired when out on his own were power tools.
In contrast with his mentioning a youths "fork" (pitch type) was something that could cause a fight among siblings. One of few personal possessions can be supposed as the cause.
Among the change of cultures he did stress that everything was so fast. And that people would kill you for a hamburger.
I brought up the life in soil Amish recognized and kept going. No substitute for poor soil and there are/were farms you could put your fist inches deep during the cold part of winter the organic material was intact and deep enough. Which , he understood well enough.

Farming is a gamble. But an honest one for most small farmers.

Years ago a guy wrote of the profitability milked out of a small parcel down South by rotating crops (extended growing season(s) allowed it there) and using about every square foot. Bee hives added ect....
Where I live it's about a 120 day season.
The best soils are known and priced accordingly. Leaving years of soil building elsewhere.

It would be nice to be independent of the rat race. And there's nothing wrong with being more independent.
In practicality , a more ideal situation is the recognition of an interdependence among like thinkers.
A prior farming oriented family comes to mind where one member raised meats. Another veggies.  Another other types of produce , ect..

Minus a family...A co-op of sorts might help cover more bases and establish a barter system.

Down the road the locals seem to join forces during field prep. , planting,and harvest time.
That saves not only hours in a day if something needs done today , but reduces the duplication of equipment needed.

I've raised hogs , chickens, rabbits myself.
Had a hand in goats ,steers, milk cows and a host of other farm related activities.
The costs can be high. And getting established (including land and equipment) is half the battle.

Today I've some poor veggies coming on. But it's simply trying to offset total dependence on today's system of food acquisition and distribution.
Not out of protest or dislike , but to try to grasp a bit of former independence from relying on others in exchange for money. Convenient as that is.
When I was flat broke I still fed my stock .
Dad instilled in me that stock ate before we did. As with watering.

Butchering stock in exchange for their learning to trust my hands for their well being , was easier when I was hungry. But was still done in a way that most folks miss/ignore today when buying prepackaged meat some one else killed and processed.
Missing the tangibility and personal moral of the whole affair...

Veggies are another matter. But when grown in a holistic attitude , reflect the environment and attentive focus of those growing them.
Yesterday in the heat there were many folks in the ag. fields near me on my way to get a tractor part some miles away.
I was enjoying the trucks air conditioning. Totally removed from the farming activities before returning home to supermarket chicken ,potatoes , and an already forgotten veggies.
But... Come fall I'll be digging some potatoes. And working carrots up.
With different kinds of beans then too , as well as before.
We'll see how the corn does.
Kind of a Noah's ark in a couple spots with only a couple of a species represented. But I'm still trying.
Purty colors. Well , cept'n maybe that brown when it's on fire...

I agree Moses, wish I never sold my place in the Catskills. 115 ac of heaven. Now I’m looking for a small plot so I can have a decent garden when I retire.
