Does anyone else participate in a farm cooperative?
Just curious, as I’ve never seen anyone else discuss this on this site, so I’m not sure if it’s common or not.
We live in a rural area and share in a farm cooperative. Some families raise dairy, some beef, some pigs, some chickens, some goats, etc… Other families plant the feed. Other families, like mine, plant the fruits & veggies for human consumption. We all share in the cost of the equipment (we repair it ourselves as well), and reap the benefits from the harvests. We also hunt for meat (deer, turkey, pheasant, etc) and fish. Everything is shared. We spend virtually nothing at the grocery store. We use dogs to help with the herding. We even have a family that joined this year with their Alpaca farm.
Most of us have full time jobs, but a few families have 1 member that farms full time.
Does anyone else do this themselves, or know of communities that do this?
Co-ops are fairly common in Idaho, although not to the extent your talking about. Most of them are a sharing equipment/water kind of thing, and most of them work their own land, and share only equipment and water rights.
North Carolina Estate Law?
Both my mother and father passed away with cancer a few years back. My mother in 1999 and my father in 2001. Sadly my father’s estate has yet to be settled. My aunt, who is the executor of the estate has failed to adequately provide truthful information and has failed to act for the greater good of me and my siblings with my father’s estate. One particular problem is with my father’s 1994 GMC 3500. It states in his Will that I am to recieve all “farm equipment” and the tags on the truck are stated as being a “weighted farm truck”. My mother and father used this truck for their horse business and I believe that I am entitled to it. However, my aunt believes that it should not go to me and she came and took it from me this past August, claiming that she had sold it 6 months before. I am very infuriated with what all is going on right now and am hoping someone could give me advice as to what to do instead of going and talking to a lawyer and spending more money. Can I get my truck back?
You may not get the truck back but she will be required to reimburse you its value amount.
