Hello All!

My family and I (Wes my partner, Annabelle  1.5yo, and myself Era) are relocating from the West coast to the Appalachia mountains. Wes and I are from this area originally but are moving back after the fires in Oregon are increasingly getting worse every year.

We are searching for a place to rent where we can have a small homestead. We have grown our food for over 7 years in permaculture style. We'd like to grow veggies, herbs, flowers, and have a small greenhouse and nursery. We'd like to steward chickens, ducks and rabbits. We are open to sharing/exchange/bartering.

I have verifiable income, security deposit, first month's rent, and 5 years of solid rental references. Wes is the stay at home daddy, and has 2 years of solid rental references.

Our needs are:
- home in the mountains or foothills, elevation preferred
- rent no higher than $1000/month
- minimum 1/2 acre lot
- 2 bed/1 bath minimum (really this is 2 separate places to sleep, we've been living tiny for 7 years now)
- max 1000 Sq ft home
- within 30 minutes of a town
- good solid internet  (I work remotely online)
- landlord who allows gardens and animal husbandry
- privacy, quiet, minimum light pollution

Our wants:
- well water
- fenced yard
- wood stove heated
- landlord who knows permaculture/ has vision of wanting their property transformed this way

Do you know of any resources or people to connect us to?

Thank you 💜

Howdy there!

Have 11 acres with a 2 acre pond and about 7 in hay - the rest is woods. Planted a rather large garden using Ruth Stout method and added apple, peach, plum and cherry trees to the new build. While the house was being built I lived in a tiny house for 9 months on the property, quite happily! I have a barn that currently has 8 ducks and 8 geese roaming the 1/2 acre paddocks. Lots for just 1 person! Plus the tiny is constantly booked on AIRBNB. I live very close to the VA BRP in Franklin County VA. Not sure you would be still be interested given it is a tiny home
Regardless, best to you and your family
Every time you till, you lose 30% of your organic matter. But this tiny ad is durable:
