Congrats Farmer Timmy.
See if you can get your personal natural gas usage free.

natural gas usage free
Just watch out for gas liquids and remember the NG Odor is not natural - it is added. NG does not typically have an odor (unless there are other things in the gas stream like sulfur, etc.) Most Operators refuse because of liability matters, but I've seen plenty of folks steal from gas wells. I've also seen some houses burn down.
The Operator wants you to be a friend. As a set of "eyes and ears" on site they consider you a valuable asset and you can develop a relationship with their "Pumper" that is their on-site supervisor. Keep their telephone numbers handy. They will appreciate calls regarding the well site and anything unusual. Treat them nice and help them and they'll do likewise in all probability.

Great news! Congratulations! We'll come help eat your harvest...

The world is a dangerous place to live; not because of the people who are evil, but because of the people who don't do anything about it.
Thanks all. I've been out of town a few days.
The farm is going to be 51 acres. About 35 of that is woods.
We have the home inspection and some lawyer stuff still to do but I think we're not going to have any more problems. Any prayers would be greatly appreciated. : )

Let me know when you're ready to start shipping out farm fresh produce.
I know you have a full plate right now but, later on think about bee keeping. Those hives can make you some $$.
Avoid naming an animal you intend to eat.

Just for fun Timmy, do you know how the Blonde spelled "farmer"?

Glad it worked out. What will you be farming? Animal, Vegtable, or Mineral?
Nice to own a chunk of land. Moved to GA from NY 18yrs ago and bought a few tracts. Was able to aquire for $500-$700
an acre. How dose that saying go "If I Only Knew Then What I Know Now" I would have bought a hell of alot more. Same Tracks are running $2500-$4800an acre depending on the timber on them. Your in for alot of work but its a great feeling. I just grow Pine, and hunt between the rows.
Buying a tractor is like buying a safe, get one larger than you think you will need.
The situation will NEVER BE THE WAY YOU WANT, it WILL BE THE WAY IT IS. You must be FLEXIBLE ENOUGH TO ADAPT and just "DEAL WITH IT".
One piece of advice-farming is extremely dangerous work - there is simply no safe tool. You must never be without safety shoes, safety glasses, hearing protection and several types of gloves. In over forty years of it, I've had two broken arms, a ruined knee, numerous cuts that required stitches, and totally lost my right eye. It's still fun as heck, but never let your guard down - expect the unexpected. Murphy lives on a farm.
