Cooler temps then most of the east side.  Beautiful views and off grid.  Looking for people who enjoy being in nature and are not so addicted to technology.  Organic small homestead with organic gardening, A2/A2 dairy cows, chickens, etc.  

Help can be temporary or if we all get along more permanent options are available.  Also investment and business opportunities are available for the right person.

I'm a single Christian female in 40s.  Must love animals or be good with them.

Right now I just need help with basic chores such as follows and if someone would like to stay longer there are bigger projects as well.  

Pick up propane in the next town which is only once every so many months.
Cut grass & weed wack in warmer seasons.
Help move chicken houses.
Carpentry help would be great.  Can be small projects or working on larger projects whatever you can offer.
Firewood sawing and splitting.
Pick up some groceries no more than once every two weeks in the next counties.
If someone knows how to use animals for work or is experienced with machinery, tractors, equipment, etc that would be a plus.
Hay making.
Fence making.
Please send me a purple moose message and then we can talk directly.  Thanks.

Hello Tara,  If you're still looking for someone to help with chores around the homestead, I am open to the possibility.    I've been a sort of nomadic traveler for most of the past 9 years but for the last two I've settled here in Asheville NC but beginning August 1st I'm setting off on the road once more.   My goal right now is to move about the four corners of this country and criss/cross many places in between.   I'm hoping to start a homestead myself in the next year or two so stopping a various places along my travels and working and learning in real time will be a value for me.   I'm very reliable and hardworking and would ensure my work and attention would be a value for you and your place as well.   I welcome an opportunity to chat if your still looking for help.

Hi Tara,
I am in the perfect position in life right now to just pick up and move anywhere!! I just completed my Permaculture Design Course and I have years of carpentry, plumbing, tile setting, and overall remodeling under my belt. I have recently traveled through that part of the country, and thought it was gorgeous!!
Would love to chat further.
Tom

Hello Tara, my name is Kellie and DD from permies told me to contact you. Said you need help with building some cabins and such. I can build you cabins at minimal material cost, I have experience with animals,  I've raised chickens , turkeys. Pheasants,  quails, ducks, I have horse experience,  tractor, weed eating, mowing, trimming, gardening, greenhouse, etc. I am not a huge electronics person, can have phone off on property,  and leave to check it. I have grandchildren and a son who's been in the hospital almost 14 years, so I have to check on things periodically.  I do love music though,  was wondering how to do that and not bother you. May be a solution out there, will look into it. But I have a truck, will be getting it fixed soon.
If your interested in continuing the conversation  let me know. Email, phone text, however you prefer.  Kellieclyde@yahoo.com. 223-269-9201

Hey Tara, I'm 29 and have always had interest in a homestead. I was a roofer for a couple years in my younger days, then I worked in concrete, onto welding, and for the past 5 years I have been a glazier (commercial window installer) and became a journeyman in the union. And now I'm a foreman. As I grow in life and knowledge I constantly feel like there is more to life than what I see. A dream of a free people from the system and government, taxes and headache of financial burden. I long to live a life of peace and harmony as our ancestors did. I watch shows, documentaries, read books and learned skills. But I don't think I could do this alone. I have lived in northern VA, Richmond, Roanoke, and scottsville. I am very much interested in this opportunity if you would like to reach out. My email is jameskimmel108@gmail.com thank you
