Hopefully, I want to be near some mountains...I have 2 spots...
1- N. Georgia, N. Carolina, Tennessee or somewhere in the Blue Ridge Mountains or the Appalachians
2- Colorado, Wyoming, Nevada, Utah, Arizona
I haven't decided really, but I want someplace that I can have "guests" (a guest ranch) but still try and be self-sufficient and be able to have food production to satisfy my family's needs.
I will need to raise horses for the ranch work and also for guests to ride. I want to offer trail rides of various lengths and difficulties, as well as maybe training and selling cow ponies. I want to have "beeves" (cows), pigs, and chickens. Also a garden.
I know this is going to be a lot to work towards, but I know that we can do it. I have 2 brothers and a sister, 1 brother in law and 1 sister in law. I figure if, coupled with my cousin and his wife (if they want to be involved with the ranch), we should be able to make it successful.
