    When the zombie apocalypse comes, (or any other apocalypse that we survive) my in-laws have a pretty nice setup out in the sticks with a herd of sheep, a cheese-making plant, a couple of cows, a handful of pigs, and I think they're starting to put in some fruit trees now too. I think I need to learn how to butcher, tan hides, and make shoes.

    Home Agriculture is not very Primal.... Agriculture was the beginning of the Fall. You should be "hunting" and "gathering" (sneaking onto neighbor's properties and "gathering" their veggies in the night OR scraping up roadkill). Agriculture is pretty labor intensive. We prefer to play.

    I'd move to BC. Too bad jobs are always in the crappy climates.

    When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.

    I don't believe agriculture was the beginning of the fall. Agribusiness, on the other hand has become destructive. In the process of producing more and more profit per acre, we've become complacent to the fact that our veggies have about 40% fewer nutrients than those grown by our great grandparents in their small gardens. Animals are squished into the tightest spaces possible and fed the cheapest food possible, and cows are fed hormones and antibiotics (to offset the effects of those hormones). Chickens are debeaked. It's all rather disgusting.

    Don't get me wrong, I believe in laissez faire capitalism (which no longer exists anywhere), but consumers are ignorantly not keeping food producers in check.

    I would spend less time on this computer and more in the great outdoors.

    Ditto Annie - I'm trying to reduce the sheer amount of information I have streaming into my life every single minute. I've cancelled my twitter account, unfriended everyone except my kids on facebook, unfollowed most blogs, and started screening my phone calls. Next step is to unplug from the email unless I'm at work. Can't quite get there yet!

    Become food self-sufficient, with a small farm. I want a small flock of dairy sheep and wool sheep. (I have raised sheep in the past so i know it's hard work) Make my own sheep's milk cheese and yogurt, raise our own meat (pork, bison, lamb), grow our own veggies, and fruit, go out in the back stream and fish for trout, and my husband could hunt for deer, and turkey, pheasant, quail. Basically, this was the way I was raised. I would snowshoe, and cross country ski during the day and spin wool and knit in the evening. Basically return to my childhood. Now if anyone could help me figure out how to finance this little endeavor that would be great.

    There in lies the problem - my solution is this - SCREW THE LAW.

    In otherwords rather than trying to buy land with a house on () I'm just going to buy the land and live on it in a moveable house (converted horse lorry or mobile library) this is still not legal, but planning permission is easier for things that can be driven off, plus you have to catch us first

    Now we just have to sell the house

    Rob what about a yurt? I have considered this in the past. Not as cheap as your lorry but indoor plumbing is nice.
