I want to be an organic chicken farmer
My name is Lee Riggs. This is the story of my journey to be a farmer, to make a living at farming, to create food security for myself, my family, and my community. To grow good food that is good for our bodies and our soul.
The last time I submitted an article I had figured out that going largish and getting a farm loan to build a barn to raise chickens and vegetables was not my path nor was it financially smart. Another element was looking for government grants and funding for new agricultural operations.
