Backyard Bees, Chickens, and Fruit Trees. How to start Urban Farming.

•, RogueBeekeeper
About two and a half years ago I bought my first house. I was twenty one and I hadn't the slightest idea of what to do with the 0.2 acres it was on. Over the course of the next two years I figured out how to turn the 1600sqft of land that wasn't covered by concrete into a productive yet very low maintenance farm.

I think most people with land (especially here at the DP) have thought about doing some gardening with it however, it can be a little bit intimidating to get started. Buying soil, picking weeds, and watering plants everyday can be more work than you want.

Instead of gardening I fenced my backyard area in and bought 8 chickens. They are so great! They keep the grass down so I never have to mow, they produce about 4-6 eggs per day, and they only require less than one hour of work from me every week.
