urban/small acreage essentials
Are you just starting out or have you owned land for a while and now ready to manage the acreage you have at a higher level?
You may not have a small acreage. Maybe it is a thousand acres? Maybe it is five or ten acres or just a lot with a house on it? Perhaps you are new to managing land with a lawn, garden, fruit trees, cropland, grassland, streams or forest. Could it be you have a small amount of livestock: cattle, pigs, horses, sheep, goats, chickens and more? Possibly you have a few pets?
