Hi List,

Farmer Don here...  Wonder if I could get some help please?

  40°46'42.77"N -  73°58'0.83"W

I found a bit of land that I like the look of, with what appears to be a 
nice water reserve so my animals can drink and I can water the grass.

Being from New Zealand (a farming community a bit below and east of 
Australia), I'm sorry but I don't know much about regulations to install 
irrigation systems in the area that I'm quite keen to set up my next 
farming venture.  I'm wondering if anyone can give me some pointers?

Being from Christchurch (site of two massive earthquakes) I know a 
reasonable amount about demolition now, so I'm not worried at all about 
the adjacent buildings as we can deal with those as we need to expand 
the farm.

I'm attracted to this area for a number of reasons, mainly because of 
the abundant wireless broadband options across the entire property.

I've done some factoring and the cash I can save by not having to invest 
in my own wireless network spanning across the country will mean I can 
pay for my new dairy milking shed within 3 years, (unlike the 
investment I've had to make on a family property in New Zealand where 
our property was out side of the reach of the local Telephone companies 
high speed DSL service and we were going to be limited to sub ADSL1 speeds!)

After reading this post on NANog and following the link provided, it 
really struck me as a great place to ask for assistance.

Some may be wondering why I don't want a more rural setting?

I want to be able to enjoy a city life style every day, and I really 
don't feel that's unreasonable given the rant I hearing about the right 
to enjoy a rural life style while also having all the quality 
refinements that an urban city provides.

Further, I don't see why I should have to invest in my community and why 
others shouldn't be focused and tasked with just doing it for me!

I do hope that my desire to use some of your land for my smelly cows 
doesn't offend any of you, but I really think my right to enjoy looking 
at tall buildings every day has to be respected!

Cheers Farmer Don
