Hello, I am a tiny house owner and experienced goat farmer (cheese maker) and organic gardener. I am retired. I am seeking a place to park my tiny house and live/farm sustainably. My house is self-contained: off-grid solar, compost toilet ( I feed the solids to worms.) I only need a water hook up. My plumbing is greywater out flow. I am quiet and enjoy working with goats. I have years of experience dealing with various farm maintenance projects: water/drip and PVC irrigation, fencing of all kinds, rough carpentry. I have lots of new skills that I have gained from WWOOF'ing both in Ireland and Oregon. I am an aficionado of regenerative (no-till) farming practices. I would like to buy into a property of about 1/2 acre and grow my own vege's. I do not use cannabis and not interested in helping on pot farms. I am open to opportunities in Sonoma, Mendocino, Lake and Humboldt counties of California. Please contact me with ideas or opportunities or just to chat about my goat and tiny house experiences.

Hi Seanski,

We just happen to be looking for someone like you to park a tiny house on our land. I started this thread a few days ago Person with tent or tiny house wanted, (and then started another on the same subject from a different angle -- which I can point you to as well. That one kind of went south fast for some reason, but it has some further information in it about what we're looking for so you may want to read it too. It is titled "What's wrong with Missouri?")

I see you are looking for something in California, but would you possibly consider Missouri? We have lots of land and you could have as big a garden here as you like. (We're in zone 6b-7a so do get some winter, but it is mild and we still have a comparatively long growing season.)

Anyway, contact me if you have any interest and we can talk. I can give as much detail as you want about the place and our plans, I just don't like putting everything out here for public consumption and would prefer to do it through private messages.

I would love this! I have three cats though. Where in Missouri are y'all? I am in Fayetteville Arkansas. Would you consider a yearly rent?

Hello Seanski,
If you've not already taken off for Missouri, perhaps I can interest you in an opportunity here in California, on the Klamath River.  We have quite a lot of acerage and a lot of blackberries (which, I understand, appeal to goats).  There was an old house trailer on the property that we dismantled, so the site is set up with utilities.  We live there part-time, but we want someone on the property full-time to keep an eye on things and in case of fire, and sometimes for an extra pair of hands.  We are surrounded by National Forest.  Its not a remote or difficult access location, but the nearest town of any size is about 1 1/2 hours away.  This is definitely not a pot farm!  If you think this might interest you, please reach out to me.  I just joined this forum, and I don't know how it works!  Thanks!
