Hello everyone! I would like to apologise for lack of activity on the site, my blog, as well as my Facebook fan page. I am looking to the future, to a time I’ll be able to update you often from my own farm.
I know exactly what I want and need to just make it happen. For the last two years I have formulated and continue to tweak the plans for my farm and game reserve. At the moment I am busy putting together a business plan which I would love to share. The idea? Simple. Literally. Back to the roots living. I want a five star game lodge on a ‘Big 5’ reserve but the twist…totally off grid and sustainable.
I have been learning about many things including permaculture, aquaponics, and even canning. My experiences thus far will give me a great leg to stand on, from managing a lodge to owning my pig business. I have set up the ‘start-up’ in to phases in which objectives will be completed yearly. The first year includes the purchase of the land, obviously the most expense year, as well as the beginning of an organic sustainable farm.
Unfortunately as most of us know, money is always an issue. I know my reserve, once established, will be one of the few places it won’t be. But, for now, I am looking for funding or any assistance on how to get funding. I will gladly send out my plan to anyone interested in reading it! (or even any other input!! 🙂 )
I have found the perfect spot and intend on starting a crowd-funding campaign to hopefully raise enough to start living my dream!!
