We recently bought a farmhouse on 4 acres of property. 1 acre houses the barn/house/garage , but we also have 3 acres that was soybeans last fall.
The farmer harvested the soybeans, but let the chaff lay on bare soil.
Anyone have any recommendations on best use for the property?
I was originally considering ~2 head beef cattle/ some goats, and letting them pasture feed, but then I got some cash crop ideas in my head.
Hops, saffron, pumpkins, strawberries, sweet clover (for bees), fruit trees- all seem like potential money makers if done right. Would likely start small then spread into the full 3 acres.
Anyone have any recommendations for some supplemental income?
