I spent the last 15 years in higher education and technology/distance learning. I then left academia to start our educational mini-farm at our residence. We now run classes in a variety of topics related to food production and natural living. We now have a 600 gallon aquaponics system inside a greenhouse with breeding tanks and nursery indoors. We also have 33 chickens & 3 turkeys, a dairy cow with calf and a dairy goat. For pets, we have 2 dogs and a cat.
