Do you have any fruit or nut trees on your homestead? We are planning to learn how to make hickory nut milk this year. We are planning on planting fruit trees in the next couple years. Do you have any livestock on your homestead? We have 11 ducks — 9 which are female. None are laying yet. Once they do we will hatch their eggs in our homemade incubator and raise those ducks for meat. We will also use their eggs in our baked goods.
