We have an opportunity within our 130 acres, nestled in a forested valley of the Ozarks. 4 plots of 5-10 acres are for sale to couples of similar values. It is now the time to bring Heartwood Hamlet to life!

Hamlet is defined as a small settlement, generally one smaller than a village. It originally comes from the word for home, which as we know, means to settle, dwell, be home.

This is exactly what we’re looking for within our hamlet, to invite gentle, values-compatible neighbors to share our eco-sensitive lifestyle.  Currently we have 4 offerings within the hamlet- read on to learn more.

Startup Offerings

As we are established homesteaders, we know how hard it can be to get started and offer some opportunities that we can share.

Along with foraging and selective logging on the 130 acres, we also offer use of sawmill and planer (with training) & use of existing high tunnel and greenhouse.


The A-Frame is for sale with 10 mostly wooded acres adjacent to Hurricane Creek. It is 24′ long, 20′ wide and has a 24′ high roof.

The A-Frame is situated 200 ft from the original homestead site where we live and has privacy as it is surrounded by trees. The A-Frame is a lease-to-buy option ($5,000 down with $800/month rent- some of that goes toward purchase price) or is for sale for $30,000.

It has:

  • Electricity & running water
  • New appliances (stove, refrigerator, water heater, bathtub/shower)
  • New doors & windows
  • Recently spray foamed with high quality insulation
  • Includes washer/dryer

  • Necessary Final Finishing Touches:

  • Finish building interior including putting up panels to cover spray foam insulation. We have most of the pine paneling (which was milled on site) ready for this purpose.
  • Flooring needed in living room & upstairs (currently plywood).
  • Upstairs vanity & toilet hooked up to plumbing.

  • As you can see, there is not much left to finish off this building which has a living/dining room, kitchen, main bathroom with utility sink, washer/dryer, bathtub/shower & vanity, & water heater. Upstairs there is a bedroom, balcony and bathroom including toilet and vanity.

    With some finishing touches, this house is a perfect homesteader’s dream and will get you off to a good start!

    We also have 3 5-10 acre plots for sale within our 130 acre Eco Haven for $1,500/acre. These all have stream frontage and great building sites.

    This is a great opportunity for someone who doesn't have the capital to buy a large tract of land, but wants to get started on homesteading/permaculture dreams!

    Heartwood Hamlet is in Ozark County, Missouri, smack dab in the middle of the Ozarks. Springfield, Missouri is two hours northwest; West Plains, Missouri is one hour east; Branson, Missouri is two hours west; Mountain Home, Arkansas is one hour south.

    We are looking for responsible, non-smoking couples to share our homestead life in the forest with us. We are offering these parcels within our larger acreage for sale and hope to find like-minded couples to share our eco-haven with us.

    If interested please send me a message and check out our website Ruralize.com where you can find more photos of our homestead and more details about the 3 5-10 acre plots we have for sale: http://ruralize.com/2019/04/15/heartwood-hamlet/

    Thanks for reading!
