You couldn't do 1,000 hectares of wheat with this concept, but it certainly works as a piece of sustainability at the household level. You could also include a few chickens and ducks (compost their droppings) and goats for milk and cheese (and weed eating). Rabbits are extremely doable too. Beef is on a whole different level of production and cost. I'd love to have a dairy cow, but that's taking the cost, and labor, up another notch as well.
