Farm Planning/Layout

Asked June 6, 2020, 5:20 PM EDT

I have purchased 19 acres of land and am planning to build a home on the property. I have always enjoyed vegetable gardening and I want to expand on this to include bees, chickens, small orchard and a large vegetable garden. Before my building project begins, I would like some advice on where to place the garden and considerations for light, water and testing the soil. Additionally, I would like to find out more about karst/sinkholes on my land as well. Attached is an google earth rough overview of the property. Any advice you can offer is much appreciated. Thank you, Sarah
