You actually don’t need much land if you farm in a different way. Aquaponics offers the ability to grow lots of food in a small space all year around. Herbs, vegetables, fruits, and fish can be grown and harvested. For a successful home system you need about 500 square feet. Now, if you want some meat you can raise chickens, for milk a goat or two, and you’d be in pretty good shape. For grains you can grow outdoors and it wouldn’t take much space to supply yourself and the family. Certainly you could get away with 5 acres or less of land.
