If you have ever thought about starting up a farm, you don't really need to look any farther than Craigslist to get it up and running! Driving the Farm-to-Market roads and the county roads of East Texas, there's no doubt a lot of farmland where you can start up your own farm. When you get your hands on a parcel of land, your road to self sufficiency isn't that far off!

Looking through the farm and garden section of Craigslist East Texas, you can just about get everything you need to start up your farm right now (if you had the land).


 

Every farm needs some sort of tractor to work the land and heavy moving. This one is available in Omaha for $11,000.

Every farm needs some cows! These two year old heifers are available in Ennis for about $2700 each, but you've got to take whole herd!

With the cattle you need a steer! Here's one from the Winnsboro area.

If you're going to have a farm, you're going to need chickens! These Pullet chickens are just $20 each in Terrell.

If you have kids or grandkids that'll be hanging out on the farm, you've got to have a cute bunny rabbit for them to hang on to! These guys are available from Avinger.

A farm can't be complete without a horse! This guy is just looking for a new farm to live on. Go get him from Winnsboro - near the place where got the steer!

With the horse you'll need farrier services, this guy from Buffalo, might be interested.

To keep the grass on the farm and around the house, just get you a couple of goats. They're good for eating grass and weeds! These guys in Jefferson seem to be pretty inexpensive!

There you have it, if you're thinking about starting up a farm in East Texas you don't have to look any farther than the East Texas Farm + Ranch section on Craigslist! Of course, with all of these animals comes feed and vet care along with maintenance costs with the tractor and any other ATV you might acquire along with way!

I should probably say this about the farm animals, equipment and services listed here - at the time of me writing this funny article (in my opinion), everything listed here was still available for sale, but may not be by the time you read it!  If they're not available, just do a quick search on Craigslist and you'll easily find a replacement or something else you weren't intending to find!
