The number one rule of real estate is location, location, location. The same goes for micro dairies. This means more than the physical plot of land that will house your micro dairy. This aphorism extends to the location of the farm in relation to potential consumers and retail locations, housing for animals and access to essentials like water. Keep in mind: the primary concern for anyone in any stage of running a micro dairy is the comfort, health and safety of your animals.
