~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Is a self-sufficient life possible? Hello, My name is Jean Marie. I live in a small western Ny town in the country. I am married with 4 children. I have a small farm with about 40 chickens, 50 fruit trees, some nut trees, large veggie gardens, assorted fruits, and a bee hive. I would like to have discusions with others on how to become self-sufficient, how much self-sufficiency can be achieved in this world, and how to live off the land.
