I know America is a massive country, but is it possible for individuals to approach land owners and ask to buy a small plot of land from them for veggie growing and chicken keeping?, just wondering, because, as I'm sure you are aware I'm English and live in a tiny overpopulated country, I was thinking about asking local farmers to buy a small allotment size plot of land from them, just for veggie and chicken keeping, would I be wasting my time?, thanks guys.

yes it is and in fact many farmers will lease by the acre or half acre. I'm sure if you spoke with some gentle out of the city types you'd find one quite easily, Hell I'd give you a good deal on a plot from my plantation if you asked since I am very limited on mobility at the moment.

Hiya Pete, are there no allotments up your way? Down here in Dagenham it's £30-50 a year but there'a a huge waiting list as the council has sold of most of the land for housing. http://www.gateshead.gov.uk/Leisure%20a ... ments.aspx

Just some info for the non UK folks, the government in the UK is required by law to provide parcels of land for cultivation. It's around $50-80 for a 2700 ft² / 250m² plot per year. The only problem with that is corruption in local government selling off all the land for a quick buck. They're even selling off school sports fields!

You got yourself a new youtube channel yet Peter?
