Have gotten approached by one of those companies to put up solar panel "fields"; ignored them. I'm all for solar and wind energy but don't want the fields ruined. Of course, if they'd offered more $... :lol:

Solar farms usually take up large amounts of acreage basically limiting it's use to nothing but solar panels. I won't ever have any regardless of the money. Not worth the destruction of the property.

Exactly. We do have a few wind farms nearby, and the farmers are still able to use (most of) the fields

Wind farm start about 50 40 miles west of me and continue to West Texas and Texas Panhandle. We have lots of wind but just no wind farms yet.

Well, I got some watermelon seed in the ground today! Will plant again tomorrow before the rains come again on Thursday. My timing just might be OK this year.

Other than cattle, I sell hay, custom mow/rake/bale for people, do some misc tractor/skid steer work, do some equipment repair, etc. If I can make a buck at it I will give it a shot.

We sell hay, mostly square bales to some horse people and some Llama people, do custom bush hogging and make hay for one farmer. Then work full time off farm jobs.

I get a pension check that just started coming to the mail box at the farm. Does that count?
