We are looking to buy some land in NW Missouri soon, and I was wondering if there were any permies in that area or have thought about relocating up that way? We are land shopping in Harrison County, and have been considering 20-40 acre plots with an existing home. (Wife isn’t sold on a wofati/Oehler style house yet... but, she agrees water, trees and slope are the main interests.

We’ve got two kids and would like to meet others in the area, and after getting moved in we’d like to find a few others of like mind. Maybe they have an RV? I’d hope we could find a couple more folks, even better if they had kids, that would want to plant and build hugelkultur beds, raise animals in a humane and ethical way, build relationships, etc.

Ideal folks probably would be more brown permie types, okay working with and eating animals, guns and hunting, growies, natural building, minimal government, homeschooling. If we could find a Missouri version of Paul Wheaton that’d be awesome! Or Sepp, or Joel Salatin, or folks that are learning and growing along those types of paths. We don’t mind some adult beverages at times, but don’t want smokers of either tobacco or anything else. I don’t mind if others do that, but not around us please.

Some of our long term goals include gardens, maybe a few cows or sheep, chickens and guineas, silvopasture, round wood building and hopefully that wofati. Open to meeting others with different dreams and maybe adding some of them in too!

PM me if interested in chatting more. Hoping to buy land this spring/summer and get started!
