Your subject title is "might want help" but you don't really say what you are looking for. Are you wanting someone to work for you as a hired hand (for pay) or someone to live onsite and share your property in exchange for work or something else altogether? Or are you giving examples of your experience and asking if someone would like you and your wife on THEIR homestead? It just isn't clear. Could you be a bit more specific?

Also, what do you mean by 5 acres 14 12:1?

Where are you located, Cougina? Incidentally, some group alcohol, recreational drug use, and tobacco use, except for ceremony, in with the type of foolishness you describe.

Maybe you could describe yourself, your location, and your outlook for those wanting to know more.

Oh, and welcome to Permies.

Hi again Cougina,

Can you operate and respond to Purple Moosages? I'm interested in learning more, and was thinking that may be a better way to exchange information.

Thanks!

All you have to do is click the Purple Moosage icon on the top of your page. It says Purple Moosage. It will take you straight to your inbox, where you can send and read messages.
 
I like you because you always keep good, crunchy cereal in your pantry. This tiny ad agrees:
