We are buying 40 acres !!

none of ur business, OK(Zone 5b)

Well we are looking at 40 acres in OH . I have two choices. 40 of it all tillabe land or the other side of the road is 9 acres and 31 of it woods.
Here are my ideas
meat goats
milk goats
mini horses
mini donkeys
I m really looking and doing my research on Heritage breeds.
veg garden for farmers market
mostly hobby type farming for personal use and 4-H for kids maybe hittng a niche market with some of the meat and cheeses.
I get Hobby Mag
Would love to do pasture raised animals
We are builidng a small log home and barn that is eco friendly and uses the earth for energy.Reclaimed wood ect. Energy effecint as much as possible
I m leaning more for the woods, but need to see if the trees are large trees and could lead to possible funiture, when fallen down from wind or disease.
i would like to know what some of you out there do with your animals and which ones are your favs and not so fav animals to raise.
