    Is it time to acknowledge the difference.....?

    Great idea. I've opted out of many requirements where possible. No fert or pesticides, stay within 40 miles for livestock haulage etc. etc. Minimize ANY machinery use, contractors where justified and the rest with 80's and 90's kit.

    If you can own it is best. Profit and lifestyle should come before status. Sanity vs. vanity.

    I'm very tech and spending averse. But if it gets cheaper I would try it. Potentially big savings in time and hassle of moving fences for rotational grazing.

    At small scale best to graze everything and buy in feed. You'll need less feed if you extend your grazing season by rotating stock and building up standing hay for winter.
