In addition to all that has been stated I have mised the farm. My parents because of my father's poor back health made the desission to sell out a family 150 year old family farm in 1965 when I was 12. Later on I had the opertunity to lead one of two poltery 4H clubs in the county I lived in in Ontario Canada. Yes I, even now have tmes I in my 60,s mis the farm :YET because of God's hand and leading in my life I have had a pleasent life.
To add to this my wife Brenda had at verious times said she wished she had known me earlier and that we could have been able to keep the farm, she grew up on the Guelph agricultural campis often going to the barns to feed and help with the animals.
Be as that may the start up costs today ( from 1970 to 2018) are steep. To purchase a 50 acher piece of land with house and even a sugestion of a barn would often be blocked by the powers that govern the counties: their thoughts "one can't make a livng on 50 "achers". Raising Irish Dexter Cattle it was porjected that the turn over was sufficient to thrive on.
Any way that's enough rant from me.
Have a wonderful week end all.

I find the powers to be statement a bit of an overreach and a bit of an exaggeration. The majority of counties and townships in Ontario wouldnít have an issue with smaller farms for the mere fact that it increases their tax base. The more people + buildings = more tax collected compared to giant acreage farms with less people and buildings on the land. Canít see why they would care what was done with the land as long as itís within the bylaws and property taxes paid.
