Sorry, California, we have happy cows here, too.
Having never seen an irate cow in Charlotte, I’m making a leap to assume they're all happy. Too bad for the nervous Chickens and Turkeys and Pigs, as North Carolina is a huge producer these animals.
If you’ve noticed I have omitted horses, there is a reason. I will address horses in another post.
This post is cow centric.
Our cows seem to be unfazed by the loss of pasture land that they used to occupy here in Mecklenburg County. Once abundantly dotted with numerous dairy farms, this area has succumbed to beautiful neighborhoods, shopping venues, restaurants, malls, stadiums, schools, interstates, light rail and community ball parks.
Now our suburban sprawl is much nicer than other cities. Sure it may look similar, but our sprawl’s beauty is not just skin deep. We have inner sprawl beauty here as well as.
This sprawl has made the Charlotte area cows happy. Remaining cows are simply for decoration. And like some foreign countries, these cows are a sign of extreme wealth, and are now living the life of Riley. I have a friend who has a few and he parades them around like Rolex watches on his arm.
Unfortunately for cow enthusiasts, zoning rules have now placed limits on the sporting of personal cows. These new acreage/zoning requirements and other rules have made buying cow friendly properties difficult but not an impossible task. As you can imagine, the current cow friendly properties have sky-rocketed in value causing another source of class warfare.
The word is out: cow enthusiasts have now started to pursue property in Charlotte’s outlying counties in full force. Realtors in these counties are calling this the Mad cow Disease of Charlotte as the buyers run amuck in their counties.
PS: I've noticed we have some pretty mean chickens around here. Some of the free rangers have attitudes. I'm just saying...to be addressed in another post.
If Buying the Farm is in your future, there are many ways to prepare. But if you are wanting acreage to raise animals stop by our Web Site. There are many farm properties in the greater Charlotte Area that are cow friendly and available.
