Backyard Farming



You don't need a large spread in the country to have a farm.
You can create your own easily and economically.
Here are some ideas and designs to have a personal farm in your own backyard.

  1. I'd really like a chicken coop someday. I know it's a lot of work: I wouldn't want my chicken to have a dirty home or to be eaten by foxes because I forgot to close the door one night! So I'll wait till I'm not a substitute anymore and have more regular hours.

  2. I have a tiny lot in beach community. I would love to find a plan to make something like this work...I think these plans are dreamy!

  3. We have the outbuildings, coop and a nice fenced pasture, but no longer keep animals. It was proving nearly impossible to protect them from predators, and the heartbreak of the carnage just got to be too much. We dug and we wired and we moated, all to no avail. Perhaps in the spring we'll try again.....
