Personal experience and production goals summary:

I grew up along the Ohio River in West Virgina and summers were spent, bailing and stacking hay, clearning and repairing/building fence line and chasing stray cattle and goats.  My grandfather, two uncles and cousin all owned nurseries or farms and I would spend the days cutting weeds away from the saplings, digging up stumps and clearning and reclaiming land.  My grandfather use to grow White Oak, Hemlock and both white and pink Dogwood trees.  My experice was mainly digging up, balling the roots in burlap and cutting weeds.  I would dig out roots of trees that grew too tall.  My uncle raised cattle in a forrest setting.   He had 7 miles of fenceline that I helped install and then maintain.  My cousin took over the nursery business from his father (my uncle) and still produces some from the land but mostly it's grown over.  I have some experice working in and around farms.  My parents didn't want that life for them or for me so I was sent to college and have not been back on the family farmlands in any meaningful way other that to walk from one side to the other.

I want to produce poultry and goat meat mainly.  I have had a dream of also producing Elk on the land for both meat and for supplying to various hunting outfits.  I want to provide a table full of food for a fair price.  The production goals all depend on the size of the land and what it's willing to support.
