They raise cows for milk and meat, chickens and ducks for eggs and meat, pigs for ham, pork and sausage, orchards for fruit, huge vegetable gardens for the family, and they farm, or do woodworking, mostly, for cash. In our area, they ranch, are loggers, and train horses for others. It depends where they live, the soil and climate, and their personal skills.
