I hope this is the right place to put this since I want everyone to see this.  I want to say "Thank you" to everyone on 48days.net. You all have been such a blessing to me in helping me to start this journey.  Since I have switched from lawn care to natural farming and gardening I haven't made any money yet (Mainly since the growing season hasn't started yet) but I have had so many more doors open to me than ever before.  Even though we are in the very beginning stages I already consider this a success!  Thank you All!

Frank, Thank you for replying, and yes everyone on has been a blessing to me!  The farming that I have started is a natural and organic farm using only heirloom vegetables and heritage breeds of livestock.  By natural and organic I mean no synthetic poisons or fertilizers. It has to be something that God himself created.  Heirloom and Heritage are terms used to define old breeds of livestock and old strains of seeds. Nothing that has been bred to be a super producer  or genetically modified organisms. (GMO's) I believe that these plants and animals that have been modified by us humans have actually lost a lot as far as nourishment and taste.  Also some of our modified plant seeds have chemicals put in them.  I also believ that this is causing a lot of cancer especially in our young people.  I am starting small with a garden and chickens since we just rent a place but have plans to eventually get our own land and expand into a much bigger garden and pork and beef as far as livestock goes.  I also sell heirloom seeds and go around and do talks and classes to help people learn about this type of farming.  My biggest challenge right now is just to find a place of our own.  Thank you again for your reply.

Hi Jeremy,

Well thank you, though I don't think I've been of much help yet.  Can you share more about the "natural farming" that you are doing and how that differs from regular farming?  What do you grow, what size farm are you working on and what challenges are you having in the particular niche you are in?  I've noticed the people on this board are really good with brainstorming and encouragement.  Even if you don't have things that are a problem in the normal sense, there may be ideas that people have to save you money or time in your niche.
