Puerto Rico project for young couples

Young couple in the early 30s, living in Puerto Rico. Left the big city a few years ago and recently acquired 20 acres.
Looking forward to help people wanting to take on farming and having their own piece of land.
We're mainly looking for couples to move close to us and grow together. Possibly building a community with a culture of strength and determination. Raise strong children and form alliances that will transcend one generation.

We're living off grid(solar + rain collection), and except for satellite internet we did everything ourselves.
We get great sun and around 120" of rain annually.
The house on the property is very far from the nearest neighbor and the property is surrounded by vacant land, forest, creeks, mountains, and monstrous bamboo clusters. It's safe. Not inconveniently isolated either, stores can be reached in 10 minutes or less, and nearby roads are not prone to landslides.
The main creek is never dry. It's steady throughout the year but gets wild when it rains a lot.
The property is half pastures half forest. Hasn't been worked in years, in some places, decades.

You could live on our property until you guys find a place and move. The idea is to grow side by side, and given our property is surrounded by vacant land we have a good chance at that.

A quick and basic description of who we're willing to help.
Young couple, ages between 25 and 35, approximately.
That value the traditional family structure but aren't necessarily religious.
Strong people with skills, the more the better. The men should be experienced in construction and have knowledge of and experience with power tools and such.
Long term planners.
In shape and that knows what good food is.
Minimalist and frugal tendencies, with a waste-conscious-driven spending behavior.
No vegans, no hippies, no drug users.

You don't have to know Spanish or have a lot of money.
Manual skills are a must, not necessarily agricultural skills though.
We plan on growing food and raising animals for meat, plant crops for income, have shops for crafting, and a ton of other things.

That's a quick and basic description of what we're looking for.
If you think that you might fit in, or maybe you need more information on who we are and what can this place offer, please don't hesitate to PM.

I'm so happy! And I wish to make this tiny ad happy too:
