I recently discovered your blog & got your book & am greatful for both. I am retired on an acre in the mountains in USA, trying to be as self sufficient as possible with rabbits & chickens, etc. My only income is social security but a lot of people are claiming that could well end so i am concerned about paying my property tax, etc. Any thoughts? Thank you for all your help so far & best wishes, ChrisThat is indeed a concern.
The crisis has no mercy with people and those that are retired usually suffer it the most.
What my grandparents did was ensure that they had a couple small condos to rent so as to make a profit after retireing. I manage it for her and take her the money every month but my grandmother could still take care of it if needed.
In our case I'd try to exploit thosr rabbits and chickens you have. Make a brand name for yourself, market it as "green" or "farm" meat produce or try finding restaurants or butchers that are interested.
Sometimes fancy restaurants what animals fed and raised a certain way. If you do that for them you might get a few higher end clients that will pay well.
