Hi,
My name is Jacob and I live in the rural hills and fields of Northeast Missouri. I am 40 years old and reside on 20 acres I purchased this September after moving back to this area from Northern New England. This is the third homestead I have started from raw land. I think I have been read Little House on the Prairie too many times. I have no intention of pulling up stakes again. A quiet life in the country doing work that challenges the mind and body is what I desire. I enjoy learning new skills and improving old ones. I am self-funded and have done many different types of paid work, recently in agriculture and construction. This year I will launch my own organic vegetable seed business, selling just seed I grew. I've been growing seed for over 10 years and it dovetails beautifully with a homesteading lifestyle.
My place, hickory hill, is 2/3 open and the rest mature woods. Last fall I built an off-grid cabin, had a pond installed, and had about 1/2 acre opened up for field space. Additionally, I have two satellite fields for seed production. I got a kitty friend in November and just got a puppy a week ago. I would have included a picture but I can't compete with puppy cuteness. Would like to get chickens but may wait until next year. This summer my plan is to start building a house using a combination of green and conventional building techniques. My neighborhood is very unique. Across the road is a land trust of homesteaders, .5 miles is an ecovillage, and a few miles is a commune in transition. The county has less than 5,000 folk and roughly 60% are mennonite. For fun I ride bikes, go for long walks, play ultimate, read, and watch freight trains. I have no social media accounts, occasionally watch screens, and am not keen on technology. I do like getting woke up by yelping coyotes and starting a fire on cold mornings. I eat a mostly vegetarian diet and try to eat what I grow (or hunt). My goal is to grow 75% of my own food. That said, I also enjoy glazed doughnuts from the local mennonite store, so I am no purist and embrace contrary aspects of my personality. My political, economic, social, and philosophical perspective is anarchism. I label that has been with me more than half my life. My ideal would be folks turn away from industrial, technological capitalism and embrace a world of self-sufficient communities of free people who treat one another and critters and the earth with respect. Too much to ask?
In the past I have been blessed to be involved with strong, intelligent, beautiful women and I hope to meet another. Someone who wants to live a similar way but also has their own dreams and goals. A person who is sweet but also can call me on my shit. I want someone who loves to learn new skills and have adventures. I'm an active person and prefer someone similar. Mutual attraction is important. I have no children but I would help raise yours. I am open to having my own but can also see a future without kids. I am not looking for a long term e-romance and could never start courting a woman without looking into her eyes. If you think we would get along send me an email and tell me about yourself and please include a picture.

Hi, Jacob. I sent an email to the address provided with a couple of photos. Would really like to connect and chat sometime if you're interested. You sound like a cool human and you can clearly dig a grave, which are the two qualities I look for the most in a future partner.
 
I hired a bunch of ninjas. The fridge is empty, but I can't find them to tell them the mission.
