Where are you? Close in age, and I'm very happy to get away from cities. Ready to be rural, and have a handy partner to share chores with, lol

Please tell more, what are you looking for in a woman. Do you already have the land in NC? When will you make the move? I need to know what a homesteading man wants since that is the type of man I seek.

I have vast experience in farming and and animals. I have a contract on 20 acres purchase to be finagled within 30 days. I'm a builder by nature so I can do anything. I have a green thumb as they say and very experienced in the process of growing . Plan is to have chickens and other animals plus 10 acre garden. I have 30 years experience with horses cows and pigs. My vet tells me I should been a vet .  A man can build anything for the right woman. I need a woman with a kind heart and to work with me side by sides share her opinions

Sounds like a similar life turning point.    I've had an 8 acre sheep farm,  also raised ducks and rabbits,  but moving into my 50's it was getting to be a real drag with the 3 hour work commute and trying to manage chores and deep snow alone.   I sold it a few years back to a wonderful young couple, and bought a house/yard in an urban area close to work.   Now I'm starting to figure out my "exit plan" and moving back to a homestead situation,  being mortgage/rent free,  in a warmer climate where snow and cold isn't much of an issue.  Maybe TN,  KY,  WV...   have been exploring tiny home builders,  shed to cabin conversions,  possible land share opportunities..   I've been on and off permies for many years;  feel free to do a search and peek at my posts if you are interesting knowing more!

Primary love language as "acts of service"  that is mine too.   It  just means you show people that you care about them by DOING things for them,  helping them with things.  

I've heard good and bad things about NC,  but to be honest I know little about that area first hand.   I just know I'm so done with new england winters,  and with inflation here.  Although selling a house here right now seems like a profitable idea.

We would have to talk more in private for me to discuss those systems.  The  plan is to have at least 30 laying hens and keep some pigeons and horses on the property.  The usage of chickens is for free fertilizer.
