Earn Money by Raising Animals
Sell eggs- Fresh eggs, especially from free-range chickens, are always in demand. If some of the eggs are fertilized and allowed to hatch, baby chicks can also be sold.
Sell dairy products- Many people are looking for a local source of raw cow's milk or goat's milk. If you have dairy cows or goats, selling milk, cheese or other dairy products can be an excellent way to earn money. You can set up a schedule with regular customers for your fresh milk to have a predictable source of income.
Raise and sell livestock- If your homestead is large enough for one or more heads of livestock, then you can raise grass-fed beef. Calves can be purchased in the spring, allowed to graze over the summer, and sold "on the hoof" in the fall. Similarly, this can be done with lambs.
Breed and sell rabbits- Rabbits are easy to breed and can be sold as pets or for meat.
Raise sheep for wool- The raw wool can be sold, or spun into yarn, woven or knitted into clothing, which can then be sold.
