This property has been developed to provide easy-care family comfort, security and self-sufficiency. The animals raise their offspring for meat and eggs, do the mowing, weeding and pest control, organic fertilizing, pollinating and honey producing, while you sit on the patio and contentedly watch them!
All the hard work has been done!
The office and shed also facilitate working a business from home. You have it all!
