Greetings from Illinois!

3 posts in this topic

The far North part, so we may as well be in Wisconsin. =)

We're starting up our little farm bits and pieces at a time. We already have rabbits, chickens and a few ducks. My kids want to do goats next, but I'd prefer to try something less "intensive" (ie, can't break through a fence and eat the neighbor's lilacs). I've been researching aquaponics for several years, tried it once, failed miserably and took up a small hobby aquarium to learn the right way to keep fish.

If we do end up with a large system, we'd be keeping fish for food. Did I mention 5 children? Yes. They're expensive to feed. Self-sufficiency is a primary goal here.

I appreciate the forum and look forward to picking some brains and - fingers crossed - having a nice little system to show for it within the coming months.

Welcome! You'll learn lots by reading and asking questions. Lot's of friendly folks around here.

Btw, I lived in Rockton until we moved down here! Don't miss the snow (do miss the ice rinks!) but hate the summers!
