Congrats! I'm originally from the upper midwest and it sure is a great place for the outdoorsman! Did you harvest the rice the old fashioned way, using two sticks. one to draw teh rice over the canoe/boat and the other to whack the stems to dislodge the rice? What a fun and relaxing way to obtain delicious food.
Only like my ancestors harvested it. We got 240 finished pounds for our storage.

No sir, (although getting the wild rice was no doubt serious work) was speaking in reference to this " We bought a 93 acre off grid Amish ranch/farm/compound. Already set up with a huge barn, home and multiple workshops."

Best to you, the new place of 93 acres sounds fantastic (but a lot of work too:) .

Talking animals & there care here primarily, as to what not to take on too much of, too soon. Other " things" project wise can be built up towards without having immediate impact if missing the daily care. However stay realistic...
Be very sure to warn your family not to trust those talking animals, especially the sheep. It's well known that sheep lie.:s0030:

On another note: Sounds like you and your family will enjoy your new life, best wishes for your future endeavors. :s0062:

Thanks, we are excited. There is a section (about 6 acres) that is not fenced and I call it the kill zone because deer come through there all winter and eat.... Oh and I can see it from my bedroom deck...
