I am looking for a partner in scheming! Someone to plant and build with. I'm a Permaculture Landscape Designer who would like to homestead and build a small natural home, probably strawbale cob hybrid. I am willing to relocate, within the Midwest. I share custody of my three beautiful school age children. I currently homestead on a suburban one acre lot. I have chickens, hoophouse, many gardens and perennial plantings.
I'm 35, separated for 2 years, processing the divorce now in Eastern Iowa.

I feel kind of silly that I laid it all out there! I'm just really tired of dating and finding that people aren't seriously into the same lifestyle as me. Permaculture work isn't work. Its an act of love and I need to be with someone who understands that. Also, that my children are an instant party! They're so funny and full of joy. All my best to you in your searching!

Yes! Goats are in the works for the next year. I need a daily goat fix too! Do you have a herd of the adorable or dairy kind?

Lol..I have a Pygmy, Boer and Dwarf/Alpine/Toggenburg does...really just getting started with them...the Boer, and pygmy are purebred, I intend to breed the boer out to Nigerian dwarf stock, in an attempt to breed a compact meat goat for smaller homesteads/hobby farms...or, in other words, an excuse to play with boer goats..as I am fond of them. lol. My oldest daughter and wife conspired to sneak in a couple dozen chickens this spring, despite me wanting to wait...soo..I was going to get some ducks to play with..nahh..they came trotting in with even more chickens, So I scotched the ducks and got my goats. Guerilla farming...I >want< mini Zebus...but on less than three acres..not sure I can make that happen...here are a couple pics..one of me taking a nap with Morgan cuddled up to me, and one of Margarita playing queen of hte well cap...

Thanks for the photos! They're beautiful. I'm laughing about how this thread became a goat love fest. It has cheered my day! Haha about the chickens this spring. I did the same thing to my ex the first year I had chickens. I just brought them home to live in a cardboard box. It was the only way to get him to take me seriously and help me build a coop! I've had ducks in the past. They are very sweet but SOO messy! They make the poultry yard slimy. I'm not trying to discourage you just pointing out the necessity to have the right set up for them! Best wishes to you and your family on your homestead!

people who have goats can't help it...it is a goaty thing..

I am holding off on hte ducks for now...I have a littl spot out back where I think I can mange to get two small pods dug, one to feed the other..and just fence that for duckses. having a small backhoe is a wonderful thing. Hopefully it will get dry enough in july or august this year to dig...
