We have 2 plots on 10 acres available for members! There’s room for a shack we’d be happy to help you build, or an RV, and we can find space for your own stuff (garden, animals, etc).  NO hookups RIGHT NOW, but achieving them is top priority!!

You can build RIGHT AWAY, with only a few very specific restrictions we will outline clearly 🔨

WE ARE LOCATED NEAR WILLOW SPRINGS, MO! Short but intense winters, long growing seasons, spring is amazing, VERY FERTIL in the middle of the ozarks!!

This is GROUND UP! You would be invited to **help us** create a Community Agreement and mission statement. We’d determine terms TOGETHER.

We know we need at least one thing: ONE of those plots needs to be reserved for someone who’s contribution (at least for the next few/several months) is mother’s-helper (It’s a physical and medical need rn): 3/4 hours a day, 5 days a week, chasing/entertaining 4 kids.  Flexible schedule.

As for the other plot, we can work out terms - do you want to help by providing some reasonable financial support? With a certain number of service-hours? What do we bring to the table, each? 💗 either way, any profits the land-based (or my own personal) efforts bring in will be shared according to terms we’ll come up with together.

If interested, reach out - we need people NOW!

Some things we are interested in (not everyone is interested or involved in everything, but here are some thing we foresee):

-green/sustainable energy and living
-own your own emotions (we can all make up, always, period, when we’re adults who own our own emotions)
-independent, and yet still community oriented
-delivering food to homeless
-when we all are taken care of, we are all healthy and happy.
-CHICKENS, at least 2 horses, maybe goats
-planning to build obstacle courses, damned up pond (that maybe doubles as a waterwheel energy source), paintball arcade
-the existing neighbors on the surrounding 20/40 acres are AMAZING and the total “live and let live in harmony” type!
-this place is dope AF!!

Religion: None specified
Food: right now mostly self-provided, UNLESS you decide to be involved to the point that all the income we put in goes to feeding everyone as much as possible
Energy: no hookups yet, but with a long extension cord you could maybe run a tv and charge phones.
Hard Rule: NO PHYSICAL DISCIPLINE, ESPECIALLY to children!! I don’t believe it’s acceptable for the physically larger person to hit the small person that can’t defend themselves. That’s an absolute line, and we want to hear your hard-limits too!!

Hello my husband and I live in Philly and plan to relocate to the ozark area once the school year is completed. We want to offer our 2 boys an opportunity to live within the natural world and not just “experience” nature on a yearly camping trip. We want them both to be able to live independently from the land the way we were intended to and not be dependent upon a broken and failing system to support them. We want to foster their spiritual growth, offer healthier lifestyle choices and most importantly we want them to know that there are many things taking place in this world that we don’t agree with and although we don’t necessarily have the power to change the world we do have the power to change the way we live within it. And although we are only 1 family and cant necessarily change how other people interact with the world, we can at least be a positive example to others by choosing to do what we know to be right. With that being said, we will be in the area for just a few days next week to check it out and would love to stop by to get more Info. I am an RN who ADORES children and loves to help others and my husband David is on disability after a few failed surgeries but he is great with our kids and can do household projects in moderation .
We are leaving tomorrow morning for Branson. My email is kborham@outlook.com. Hope to hear from you!

Hello, my husband and four kids would love to do that if it's still up for grabs? We have an rv and honestly really need to find a place to land in the next couple weeks (house we're in is in decrepit state and landlord's insurance is kicking us out) (house was like this when we started renting). We currently have chickens, couple pigs, and Rabbit's, love the homestead lifestyle and would love to hear from you. Text me or email please (6158868994) /brecooknna@gmail.com would love to do this

Are these ten acre plots still available? I'm looking for land and have a skoolie, seeds and some homesteading supplies. I have experience homesteading with various types of livestock. Basically I'm a Jill of all trades and would be happy to work for land! I have kids ranging from older teenager to a little one, my oldest and I could easily be a mothers helper or we could provide physical labor.

Hi everyone! Thanks for the interest by those who have shown it!

I actually wanted to come on here and say that we are no longer looking.  We got really excited when we got out here, and though my intuition was hinting to just let things unfold naturally, I was eager and jumped the gun...

We DID invite a couple out, and that worked out about as well as a radioactive mattress... lol. That experience has given me easier access to the patience I think we’re being called to... I’m a big believer that “when it’s right, it will happen”, and I don’t have to force it...

So... don’t be a stranger; we welcome friends and messages! We’d also be happy to have temporary visitors (though you’d need your own lodging, lol). But for now, we’re choosing to listen to our guts and take the more naturally-occurring method, and just let things FLOOOOOWWWW ^,^

Thanks again!!! Sorry for any inconvenience, and Blessed Be!! 💗
