So we are moving right along in the farm buying process. We have contractors coming out this week to look at the house and price out the work that needs to be done.
I am getting quotes for doing the perimeter fencing (we are going to cross fence in electric). There will only be two real pastures as the land is only five acres. We intend to rotate between the two.
A question about pasture maintenance/ care. The pasture has been a hay field in the past, but the are some areas that are ‘rougher’ or over grown. We will not get to take possession until the end of April and I do not know what can or should done for them. We are going to bush hog the most over grown section and use that as our ‘sacrifice’ while we acclimate the boys. Would it be too late to fertilize or spray for weeds? Over seed?
We are starting out without a tractor so anything we do will be handheld.
Any advice would be GREATLY APPRECIATED!!
I forgot to mention we are in Charlotte, North Carolina.
