We are looking at a property in Tassie that is 100acres of natural bush land with some cleared paddocks and it's on the coast.<br><br><br><br>
My question too you all is what would you do with it to earn a living??

Veganic farm selling local produce and exporting things to Japan, like edamame, which Australian farmers have given some thought to. If it is in Tasmania, I would also want to grow opium poppies as a commercial crop to sell to morphine-makers, to make a little poppy-tea for myself, now and then, should I need a pain reliever, as a commercial poppy-seed crop, and to have my own fresh poppy seeds of various cultivars (much tastier than store-bought varieties, and available in a much greater range of different-tasting varieties)

plant a whole bunch of mango trees papaya trees and avocado trees so I can finally quit drooling outside the other people's fence or practcing sprinting to out run pit bulls (when drooling leads to something else) <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>

LOL...You've never been to Tassie i take it. It's about as far south as you can get before you start bumping into iceburgs. I need some cold weather ideas.

No prize for guessing mine!<br><br>
ALPACAS!!! Alpaca farming! all the way! on that, I could run a herd of 150-200 Alpacas!!<br><br>
And its not just b/c I like Alpacas. The wool trade in Alpaca fur is growing . . .and being so close to Japan . . . the possibilities are endless.

At $500 per castrated male,<br><br>
And then $250 per year from that male,<br><br>
NO ONE will be such a fool to abuse an Alpaca! (I can hope, cant I?)

You got me in one<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)"> I think some sort of organic farming project will be the go. We are just dreaming though. WE are still trying to get enough together to build on the 5 acres we have here so we can escape suburbia.<br><br><br><br>
I'll have a nice little permiculture set up going there<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D">

NOOOOOO!!! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/shocked.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":eek:"><br><br><br><br>
Marmite! Marmite! Marmite!!<br><br><br><br>
Marimite is the better of the *mites. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/grin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":D"><br><br><br><br>
but I suppose that's a whole 'nother thread, eh? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/wink3.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=";)"><br><br><br><br>
I'm with TAG on the alpaca farm thing. So long as cutting the wool off them is no worse than giving a human a haircut (I wouldn't want to hurt something with a face that sweet <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smitten.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":smitten:"> ).<br><br><br><br>
Failing that, I would go for a veggie farm. One can never have too many veggies growing round.<br><br><br><br>
and why am I answering a thread 2 years old? <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/doh.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":doh:">

I'm glad you pointed it out before I wasted time answering. Why do newbies bump such old threads all the time?! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/evil.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":evil:">

I would plenty of gardens. Plenty of beautiful trees, and flowers. I would get horses too. Just make it a comfortable area.
