Hi there.  We are in process of purchasing 119 acres in Southern Kentucky.  Our plan is to build a self sufficient homestead over the next x years.  We currently live in Indiana but travel to Georgia to work at a foster boys ranch 2 weeks of every 4.  Obviously that doesn't leave us much time to develop the homestead and manage it.  My wife and I are new to homesteading and around 60 years old.  We are thinking we might work another 3-5 years and then want to be pretty much full time in KY.  Wondering if there is an experienced couple/family that would want to help us build the homestead in exchange for living there.  Not sure about details of this arrangement.  Obviously could be fraught with difficulties.  Anyway we thought we would start by seeing if this kind of thing generates any interest.  Thanks.

My guess is we would have to wait till 2022 to really get started with things.
