Central Pa Off=Grid farm seeks partner to finish + enjoy life |
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hello readers
SEE PROGRESS + NEW PICS below: "at my site in signature"

I am middle aged seeking another wilderness minded person who wants to partner with my farm + the 1800’s home I bought with 6 acres in Central Pa. 50 miles N of Harrisburg, Pa. at the base of a 2000 ft Appalachian mountain. The farm is surrounded by larger farms yet located in a wooded section. I have trout streams running through 3 acres of my 6 acres. I have a creek running along my garden + house + a yr round hand dug well + a spring in basement of my home. I myself have been doing farming + forestry work since 1972. I started a recycling center in 1975 in Redway, N. Calif + have built green homes in Philly pa burbs in the 80’s / 90’s + planted many fruit trees + organic gardens around the USA + have left them for others to keep working as I moved on to do other places. Now I am finally settling down. I have found the Amish / Mennonite farming region of central pa to be one of the last best clean places where the weather is seasonal + land, water is clean (4 counties south of any Marseilles shale drilling). I am into recycling, conservation + utilizing the earths natural heat. This house has a fireplace in the basement, a wood cook stove in kitchen + parlor stove in living room. It has 4 bedrooms upstairs + legal outhouse outside. I want to build a sauna + well house for winter use. I am almost OFF-GRID with only 14.00 a month in electric bills. I built a root cellar in the basement. I want to build an icehouse someday.
I would like platonic people who want to do positive work + make this farm self sufficient. I dislike cigarettes + lazy people. If your a simple country person we will get along well. I am easy going. I have lived with all kinds of people, except for rednecks which are not my cup of tea.
Note: I am care giving my 89 yr old mother here, so for security I do not list my actual location online. I do not have many visitors + the ones who do come are mostly family or neighbors. I did have one woman come here but she was too much of a city girl for this farm. I rather the next person make a decision to stay a while before they even come here. My pictures + blog explains enough for a person to make a comfortable decision before coming here. We are a rustic wilderness household still using outhouses + chamber pots + hauling our water. Note i can only deal with one extra person right now. Maybe in time we can fit more. I can feed only one now.
 
Sasparilla and fresh horses for all my men! You will see to it, won't you tiny ad?
