“Green acres is the place to be. Farm livin’ is life for me.” Those words can best describe what I would like to do for living. I want to have a small farm that raises quality meats, eggs, and produce. I would also like it to be a place where children can come and learn about all the different animals and their roles on the farm.
I plan on attending Colorado State University to study Animal Science in their Agricultural Department. With this education, I hope to be able to run a farm as efficiently as possible, with little waste, and with a consideration for the environment. I hope to raise my animals with integrity and when the time comes, to process them humanely.
I want my farm to be a place where the community can come and see how their food is raised or grown, where it comes from, and how farm operations work. I not only want to provide quality food for the community, but also provide an education and experience that would be enjoyable for families.
Though my small farm may not change the world, I hope to change the way people see their food in Small Town, USA.
