Backyard farmers have to deal with the elements, drought, and disease, the same as large farmers. But the biggest challenge backyard farmers face is one large farms don’t generally have to contend with – neighbors. When farming in the suburbs, you are lucky if you have half or maybe a full acre. Often you have much less which means your decision to keep chickens or compost your food waste impacts not just you, but several other families. So how can you be a good neighborhood farmer?
