Add in robotic support for close grooming and we have a hugely productive agricultural protocol.
Integrating livestock allows close grooming of woodlands and natural grasslands as well. Chickens are used to initially process garden lands such as shown here to produce a weed and insect suppressed growing environment. Throw in a biochar enriched organic mulch and the soils will continuously improve.
Right now a couple can master an acre or two well enough of garden and perhaps several additional acres in orchard trees along with free range chickens and a couple of goats to suppress the understory.

(Natural News) Can small-scale farming in the modern age really generate enough income for the average family to make anhonest living? For Jean-Martin Fortier and his wife, Maude-Hélène Desroches, it does. The Canadian couple grows beets, broccoli, salad greens, carrots, and various other types of produce on their modest 1.5 acres of land, from which they generate an average of at least $140,000 per year in sales – not too shabby!
