What is you soil type, climate, and water availability for irrigation or aquaculture? These factors will help in identifying possible production. Pigs and poultry are top possibilities, specialising in quail (if there is a market in your area) is a good niche market. Raising fish, for table or growing koi for re-sale as higher value fish, wile using the water for vegetable, flower or herb production can be done very intensively;
this site gives an idea as to how this can be done.

Who is making a reasonable return on a small acreage? what type of production do you find works better on a small holding as opposed to the typical large scale crops and livestock production?

If i have that much amount of ground available to me i would farm chilies there.
As they are a big profit in the farming community.

The OP is asking for what to use it for a FARM, not a recreational area. :rolleyes:

Where do you live? Twenty-four acres is quite a lot for just ducks and pigs. You could convert it to pasture to raise a few cattle on, or a herd of sheep or goats on.

But really, we need to know your LOCATION (as in what country and state/province you live in) before we can give you any straight-forward answers. You're going to get answers all over the board of whats "best" to do. I know for a fact that 99.9999999% of the time such suggestions won't work for you.
